It is no wonder that the Good men of this town should earnestly strive to conquer [indecipherable] when a moment's reflection, makes the existing caused by it so hideously palpable.

I called this evening to [indecipherable] Lotherington and heard from him that Emma had been in town and caght in the rain had to stop 2 hours on the Arcade. It makes one happy to notice how proud of and how kind too he is to Emma.
