right & all that sort of thing yet they are not willing I should learn. They do not approve of public balls and neither do I but I can not be allowed to go to dancing school nor to learn dance where there is a large number so that even if I should have an opportunity to dance at a private party I should be ashamed to. This is just the kind of a dancing party (not public) as I do approve of and I would like to have the privilege of going though as mother has turned I donâ€™t think I should have gone. Mollie canâ€™t go. I am sure I would not neglect my studies but study all the time makes it too dull. Mollie told me so bad news about Mr. -----. It is what I expected and we have done very wrong to have anything to do with a person whose principles we knew worth nothing but what can we do. I canâ€™t think of anything else. A pretty spread it will make when it comes out as it must.
