[Manchester—Tuesday, 14 July 1874]

Tuesday. Mrs Darrah came to return our visit & to bid us farewell. She goes with her sister to Highgate near Canada to be treated for Rheumatic tendencies. She seemed sad but better in feeling.

Mary the little maid here is at the point of death, we hear. We have not seen her & she has had no physician. Our landlady, Mrs Dame, behaves herself like no gentle dame but like the ignorant cook she is and has estranged from herself valuable friends as well as done her best to estrange these friends from each other wherein she has just failed of success, thank heaven!
