Fine but not bright. Drove Bell and Bess to Hook Norton. The latter returned to Cheltenham by the 3.48 pm train. The roads were so muddy and stony that I had the greatest difficulty in getting Ruby along. The labour of doing so, combined with the anxiety lest we should be too late for the train brought on me an attack of palpitation of the heart. My feet were intensely cold. So I went to bed as soon as I reached home, and having had it warmed, soon recovered.
