[A- at Cliff Hill]
It is her sister not Captain Sutherland who is awkward. He returned from York this morning quite altered, delighted with Mr Gray – glad A- had put the business into his hands and apologised for what he, Captain S-, had said to A- yesterday. It was Mrs S- not he who refused A- the keeping of the books. He told Mrs S- she was illiberal – so he was got right with A-.
She cried all yesterday and was quite poorly but held up as well as she could. Mrs S- on the high horse, and A- stood up against it very well. She promised her aunt to go again for two or three days but I declared she should only go for one night.
