28Oct1864, Fred Returns Home

CHATSWORTH, October 28th, 1864.
—Read Fawcett, and began "Martin Chuzzlewit" for the 2nd time. Capped verses after dinner, almost up to the time that, hearing certain sounds, I peeped out of the tea-room, and saw my Fred marching up the hall, about 10¼. It's ridiculous how long I seem to have been without him ! Dear old Nevy 19 to-day.
