1831

18 October:  … I had an interesting chat with her on these matters and then walked back to Greenwich – I crossed Charlton Fair – a lively scene and no rioting – here I took a cold dinner in a booth and then called on Miss Hays – I found her returned to Mrs Brown’s School – she was looking but poorly and seemed not very comfortable – I hope to render her a service by making her acquainted with Mrs Niven. Met Mrs Geo: Wedd she looks still handsome and is the mother of a large family – she is on friendly terms with Mrs Hays – her husband has had misfortunes which have perhaps been rather advantageous than otherwise to their characters – he is doing well now.  I concluded the evening at the Athenaeum and I called on the Aders.
