“This evening I have for the first time deceived one who is so dear to me…”
“Pleasant. Mother has gone to Berkley. Mrs Howard and Mrs Hurley (?) came this evening.. This evening I have for the first time deceived one who is so dear to me and can I acknowledge to him wherein I have erred yes by Gods help I will explain and trust to be forgiven It has taught to a lesson not to be forgotten.” – Hattie E.F. D.
