Monday April 16.
Rain!! and no going to Malvern. I am very sorry. But we might have gone on the clearing-up, if Mrs. Cliffe had not been afraid of trusting her horse on the heavy roads. So Eliza explained in a note, which prorogued our journey until Wednesday. I am not half inclined to go on Wednesday. Began to write to Mr. Boyd about Synesius—but I wont send my letter until tomorrow. Mrs. Hanford & Miss Martin called here.
I wish I could get at some Greek books which I cant get at!—the Alexandrian writers for instance, & Plato whole—& Athenæus—& Aristophanes.
