Overcast, and dull. Probably rain at hand. We slept untill half past seven this morning. The morning was so dull, but very mild indeed. I was engaged to dine at mothers to.day, to met Aunt, and Matilda, but the rain commenced at 11. and not feeling well, thought it prudent to defer my visit. Sat over the fire all day reading, and writeing. A friend dropped in this morning, we spent one hour in chatting and gossip, she told me news.
