1Wednesday Night
4Wilfred came this evening now he is gone. You are just getting to
5Anerly now I think. I feel somehow so happy.
7I will be able to work very much. I wish I had made my man happier.
9But he was a little happy & he made me so happy.
15I feel so quiet & happy. I am going to bed. Only just now when I
16passed the window & looked out at the lamps I wanted you so.
18I didn’t pay him for the pens, but never mind.
