My heart was filled with longing to get home, and I felt that I could not put my bonnet off, but go straight through alone. But cousin S. seemed so disturbed, so unwilling, after all her extreme kindness, I did not see how to disappoint her in her plans for here and Columbus, especially as she determined she could not go to Delaware with me, but would see me to Columbus, and stay with me at brother William's all night, and, as a favor, asked me to stay and go with her. How could I refuse? . . . .We took a carriage and drove around the city and the beautiful suburbs; but I can truly say I could only enjoy the ride with my eyes, for I feel so sad and disappointed, and long to get away to you.. . . . We shall leave to morrow at 9 A. M., and stay with cousin until Thursday A. M. She will then go to Lancaster, and your wife to you. The poor children! I am so sorry to disappoint them so many times.
