The day is fine for this season. Rode about fourteen miles to see a man who had money locked up in the chest and his house and famijly in the most nasty, dirty situation imaginable. But this was not his fault as much as that of his wife. She is teaching several daughters to be just like herself. It is deplorable to see inculcated in a family such low feelings of propriety.
