[With Marian] To tell her Mr Abbott was there and had come up to speak to me which I thought [bad] tact – that I spoke civilly but distantly and turned away. I thought she had better tell him she had told me of this queer business of hers and tell him what I had said and what I should do and the real state of the case about the property. She said when she had once made up her mind, she was not likely to change, and the thing had been too long thought of for her to give it up. I said that I hoped she would take care to have the settlements properly made and to see that he really had what she expected – that as she was to live in the town the break between [us] had better be entire, half measures would be painful to both sides. She was quite, she said, of my opinion, so it is understood and agreed mutually to pass without speaking.
