J.Y.F just joined the 'Asia', delayed joining due to Capt.Foulkes being in the country. J.Y.F. & one other supernumerary officer, not yet 5th mate. Free Mariner's Licence, when available would allow J.Y.F. to stay in India. Scotch cousin Mr. Burgess promised to get letters of recommendation from Harry Dundas. J.Y.F. had thought of getting them through Mr. Palk & his father Sir Robert, but Lady Mary Palk had just died. Determined to stay in the 'Asia' Frank Luttrell might procure a 4th mate's berth for J.Y.F's next voyage. Mr. Bruce in London, better health, hoped to go to London that Sunday and to visit Miss Hebden. Mr & Mrs John Luttrell had left Powis Place the last Saturday; their daughter Charlotte's life despaired of. Hopes that the Seale family had passed the whooping cough stage. J.Y.F. spent a few days at Bristol & a week at Bath. One evening his partner was John Sweet's intended. She & her sister both sweet. Pilgarlick destined to cross the line many times without a messmate. Dined with Prideaux Brune, his bedfellow not equal to the lovely Fanny, Cousin Southcote might stand for Okehampton if void.
