Monday, 29 September, 1828

Morning was ushered in with rain and continued so during the day with slight intermissions; and was very disagreeable riding; indeed, I was in it constantly and got very wet; came home in the evening and as there was no fire in my room, I spent the evening very agreeable with H. by a good, comfortable fire so that my wet clothes were dry when I went to bed. I not only thought of a home of my own, but expatiated on its pleasures considerably.
