CHRISTMAS DAY

Mr. Samuel Flux married to Miss* (name not written down). We are very disappointed having received an invitation to spend the day and sleep at Mr. Dore’s, but it raining very fast and has the appearance of lasting the whole day,- about 3 o’clock we were delighted to see Mr. W. W. D stop in front of Wootton (Villa) in a pony cart – it was raining very hard and mother was rather warily for us to go, but however we did go and spent a very happy evening indeed. We retired to rest about a 1/4 past 2 o’clock.
