At Belmont the previous day, the young people performed in a play ''The Old Maid'', the Miss Claytons sang & played in the intervals. A gentleman sang Handel songs, Family not leaving Mt. Boone as soon as expected as JHS was going to the Assizes at Exeter. PS would join him at the end of the week, & go with him to Portsmouth. PS did not argue with the prejudiced & vain lady Lady J referred to. Hal's hair cut on his birthday was enclosed in the last letter. Hal walked alone that morning. Mr Charter often called, Mrs C seldom would walk up the hill, but her health was no worse. Flower seeds were expected soon from Liverpool, so was Lady J in the summer. PS & JHS were planning Hal's merry Christening, with the expected little one in church too with both Grandmamas. The Blackawton family, Aunt Bond, the Necks if possible, the Andersons & the Charters: JHS would tap a famous cask of ale from Burton. Glad Sally had fixed on a husband she had been a little cruel on her swain's. Surprised no news from Scotland; had Uncle Bewicke been offended by the letter she had sent about Mrs. Bond, he had not replied?
