Hope that illness was not the cause of silence. Going that evening to the Winter Ball. Invitation by Mr. Mansfield, a reasonable man & lover of music. To a ball previous Friday week given by officers of the 108th Regt. All Irish so not accepted. Mama intended inviting him one evening with the Carterets. A very good instrument (delivered?)unexpectadly early. Previous Friday met many genteel people at an Italian 'Lady's Rout'. The Amyatts were engaged. Dr A had called twice on JS so he must return the visits. Much relieved, Morish had heard from Mr. Full. Mr. Des Moulin had just left. 5 guineas soon due for him so French and Italian much improved. Many French emigrants around. Mrs Carteret's bad opinion of all Southampton servant girls. It was very necessary for Aunt to get one for JS & Charles to have one when they come. The Italian Dictionary was greatly needed and the drawings. Commisioner Franshawe had recommended Mr. Carteret for the Commisioner of Gibraltar. Kitty was adverse to coming to Southampton.
