Wortham, December 16th, 1762
Father had come back two days ago. He stayed the whole time in Town and what I could make out of his remarks towards my mother, he also visited Lord C., the new one, and his lawyer, a Mr. Tredwell. I suppose they had to talk about the marriage contract and the refunding of some money, father had on the expense of this marriage-not-to-be. With this, it has an end. I´m no longer afraid of leading a life with a scandalous rakehell, title or not, wealthy landowner or not. Mother is sad of course. She was already priding herself of having disposed of all her daughters in marriage. And now?
