Michaelmas Day, 1866, Visiting the Locals

HOLKER, Michaelmas Day, 1866.
Freddy wrote it isn't likely he can come to-morrow. 0 dear ! My tête-à-tête dinner was rather awful. I did a good deal of text. Visited Sarah Carter and Alice Haddatty (the most fearfully dirty, witch-like old woman), Sarah Bradby, Widow Dickinson, at Flookburgh ; Sarah Newby at Cark ; Mrs. Walker, and another Dickinson (Mrs. Birkett's sister) at Quarry Flat. Missed my Fred terribly.
