Wednesday 14th.

At home at my room all day. The weather, having set in for a storm, gave me little or no temptation to go out. I therefore travelled through an amazing variety of Novels and Tales obtained from a Circulating Library in the Neighbourhood. Abby was in town but only for a few minutes, as it rained so violently. I could not see her. My mouth slowly improving although I can scarcely perceive it. The gargle prescribed is horrible. Evening, George came and amused me with pleasant conversation.
