19Jan1865, Dear Old Bodies

HOLKER, January 19th, 1865.
—In the afternoon Lav., Lou, and I went to see Aggy, Hannah, and Betty (their surnames will not stay in my head !) ; dear old bodies. There has been a good deal of fever about, but it is going off. Poor Brailsford, the keeper, has lost his only child with some brain complaint. Lou gave to 3 old ladies a charming shawl apiece, which she has crocheted.
