Text, letter

Mr Morgan called this morning in his dog cart. Drove me to his house at Forest Hill. He has only recently moved into it from Sevenoaks. It is a very large place, the gounds being extensive, but it wants a large sum laid out upon it. I saw his three daughters, the eldest of whom is to be married to Mr Ashwin, curate of a neighbouring church and one of the Masters of Dulwich College. I took the train back to Gipsy Hill. Met Bell, Lottie, Katie and Lily out shopping.

Saw Vere in the distance but could not get near to speak to him. As is his wont he was accompanied by 2 dogs and 2 girls. Bell and I called at Cintra this afternoon, but neither Mrs Jones nor Vere was at home.

Mr Morgan came this evening. Stan had his interview with Mr Wettenhall, and told him that whilst Kate had great respect for him she had no affection.
