[Tuesday] December the 19 [1815]
Went to town the 5 with the girls and returned home today, the 19. I spent my time very pleasantly. The stillness of Colin Grove seems quite strange to me after the noise and bustle of Halifax. -- Mr. Akins still remains in town. I have brought a set of books home with me to pass away a tedious hour of a winter's evening. It is Conviction, by Miss Swansea.
