No kiss.

Marian in no good humour at first but my calmness and temper got her right and I believe she likes and respects me more than she does anybody else. Said I could not remove my mother’s bones to Halifax – my father having the right over these and Marian being his sole executrix.

No kiss.

I unluckily name Mrs Edward Rawson we had seen at Nicholson’s this morning. A- snubbed me before John and silenced me and I hardly spoke again – fell asleep till coffee. A- would have none and would not go with me to my father – I went without her and then into the garden till Greenwood came. Found A- in bed – she said she was sorry and so we made it up. I must not and will not let her get the master [of me] – her temper wants some management, or it would be queer and unhappy to herself and me at times.
