10th I have the blues to day. Saw Mollie a few moments this morning and am going up there to night to have a talk about it. I do wish I knew what to do be just myself and to him though I consider him far beneath my notice now. Uncle Franks people have come. I can’t talk. I was so cross to Will this morning that he went off mad. But it is enough to make a body mad to find themselves took in that way. Mollie worse off than I. Went up to Mollie’s (?) is home. 11th At home and studying. Went into Mrs. Jennys a few moments. The Rochester tribe arrived about noon. Cold and blustery.
