No kiss – A- low as usual.
A- had scarce got home before she was in tears and quite low – got her to lay down and left her.
Long talk. A- thought it her duty to leave me – explained. Said I could not stand this – she must make up her mind and stick to it. She should not have difficulty in leaving me, but I thought her very foolish. The fact is, as I told her, she did not like signing her will. I told her she had best do it now and alter it afterwards – we should both look so foolish if she did not – it would make the break between us immediate. She had better take time. At last she saw, or seemed to see, her folly – and said with more than usual energy she really would try to do better. Tis well my own confidence is not great – I will do the best I can accordingly.
