…We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner. Dr Snelling paid my wife mother visit (he lying last night at Stonebridge). In the evening our late servant went home and Betty Mepham came to attend my wife. In the evening wrote my London letters. At home all day and but little to do. by wife very ill, poor creature; who can express the pain she has endured in this illness, and which I think she has borne with great patience and resignation to the divine will.
