This evening I concluded again to see H., as it would be an act of injustice to her to give no explanation or consolation to her if the unfortunate occurrence of the first instance had affected her. Ineed, I found her in a deplorable state of dejection and sorry for the step her mother had taken. But endeavored to apologize for it and to satisfy my mind on the subject. Again everythingwas arranged, in a satisfactory manner, but I have lost much of my respect for Mrs. Conrad, and it may be I am very wrong in my opinion of the cause of the conversation on the first instant. I, however, will leave the subject and only keep it in rememberance.
