November 12, Sunday.—Coming home from church Carrie and I met
Lupin, Daisy Mutlar, and her brother. Daisy was introduced to
us, and we walked home together, Carrie walking on with Miss Mutlar.
We asked them in for a few minutes, and I had a good look at my future
daughter-in-law. My heart quite sank. She is a big young
woman, and I should think at least eight years older than Lupin.
I did not even think her good-looking. Carrie asked her if she
could come in on Wednesday next with her brother to meet a few friends.
She replied that she would only be too pleased.
