6 I think you are wrong about the trains. The According to the A.B.C.
7the North Western has no trains for Durham, & the 12.25 by which I
8leave St Pancras goes straight to Durham, getting there at 8 oclock
9But they may not be going to Durham itself. I must go on Monday by the
1012.25. because all my friends are expecting me, & going to meet me at
11the station &c. I'm so sorry I can't go with them. If they do turn up
12at St Pancras at 12.25 I shall love to have them with me.
