Then to A- in tears on the bed – some time in getting to know what it was all about. Viz. because she did not like to go to Church in [the] yellow carriage – said I would order it differently directly and got her right again. I have been strongly impressed within these few days even from little things in her own manner that we shall not stick together forever – she will want to be off – well, be it so. I will try to manage my affairs as well as I can and let her go. Hope springs eternal the human breast. Perhaps after all I may have Lady Ann Scott.
