Anniversary of my dear Mother’s burial at St. Margaret’s, Ipswich in 1843. Also of the marriage of myself and my dear wife in St. James’s Church, Halifax, Yorkshire in 1853. A thaw and frost afterwards. I walked as far as Burdrop with Frank this afternoon but palpitatis cordis came on and I was compelled to return. I lay on the couch in the dining room for half an hour, had my feet rubbed and took two or three teaspoonfuls of peppermint with water and a little gin. Then I got very warm, especially in the feet, and was soon all right again.
