17Nov1864, Time Crawls

CHATSWORTH, November 17th, 1864.
—The time crawls ; to that degree that I dated a letter the 18th to-day, thinking 2 nights must have passed ! Nevertheless this day was much brightened by my Fred's dear letter, the 1st I've had since our marriage, and by the report of his Female speech in the Leeds Mercury. It must have been an excellent one ; to the point, original, not too long, and with his own self shining through it.
