Richard Austin’s niece, Coles, a woman of 45 or more who is a notorious drunkard came and asked for some port wine and brandy for him. But she brought no doctor’s order, and I did not feel that I could trust her, as she steals her uncle’s money when she can get a chance and gets drunk. So I took some wine and brandy with me and entrusted them to her father who said it was of no use to trust her.
