[Manchester—Thursday, 18 August 1870]

Thursday August 18. A warm day with a cool south wind blowing. The weather has been cool, almost autumnal for two days and everybody has been refreshed by the change. Such a summer! is the outcry everywhere. Fechter has returned and Jamie has seen him but he is very busy and surrounded with people so he had had no chance for a quiet talk. He had nothing new to tell us in these short interviews.

Today Jamie Beal has come to pass a week and pretty Miss Ward has left—the days slip by and I already see the summer nearly gone. These past cold days have been a premonition of the end.
