A- had been ill tempered about my not going immediately to breakfast this morning – I had waited half hour for her and she ten minutes for me, but she had come just before Adame Gassie to give me a kiss. However, my little bit of remonstrance seemed all wrong and she was all for going to breakfast and leaving me till this afternoon. I gently but determinedly talked the matter over and perhaps succeeded better than usual. I had not uttered at breakfast, but the vexation has sent all the blood to my head, and I felt that this work must not last much longer. I must either manage her or be rid of her – what will be the event?
