are doing and thinking of, out in the world. I do not care much about going, yet I would like once in a while to go out of the woods. But I daresay I am just as well at home. I am sorry Rachel has gone. We have met with a serious loss. Our old maid friend Miss Paidelle is married and gone. She visited me about once a week bewailing the wickedness of mankind in general and the people of Walsingham in particular. Yesterday morning her brother, an old bachelor was here, he asked the liberty of coming some Sunday & bringing his flute with him. I think I shall set my cap for him. Mr. Dunning an old widower with three children comes quite often he brings me fruit & books which I am very thankful for. I had a letter last week from Lissa she has a son a month
