a kiss last night long and tolerable Rainy windy night – fine morning – breakfast at 10 – a little while tête à tête with my father Marian being gone to Halifax – mentioned Marian and her intended marriage – said she had no need to do it – I had always offered to do all I could for her – She might have had a home whether Adney and I were here or not – and I had only made one request viz. that she, Marian, should invite people she knew I did not wish to have anything to do with – matches for money seldom answered   I only hoped she would take care not to be deceived   I did not think he had so much as she supposed   but I had told her she was old enough to judge for herself and that she knew the manner in which I should act    mentioned my originally leaving her three hundred a year which she had thrown in my face – my father seemed to agree with me and to be pleased that I had named the subject   but merely said when  said she was old enough to judge for herself    yes she was    A- [Adney] came and interrupted us or more might have been said – Adney and I off to Cliff hill at 11 – above an hour with Richard Woodhead, looking about railing and posts – sat 55 minutes with Mrs. Ann Walker and Mrs. Rogers – the former quite gracious to me – then out again about the railing – set ot out – home at 3 1/4 – from then to 6 siding dressing room closet etc. Had Jonathan Mallinson and Mark Town about the Mytholm farm – would say nothing – Mark wanted to have it, if I would agree about the land he now has – dinner at 6 – coffee – won 5 hits and lost four – 20 minutes with my aunt till 10 10/.. before and after till 12 1/4 helping Adney to arrange her books – Marian had company, mysterious – I not to know whom unless I particularly wished it, so declined inquiry – very fine day – Fahrenheit 44° now at 12 1/2 tonight – Mr. Parker would not come in but left the biddings for the Mytholm farm –
