22nd February 1826

Mama and Mrs Fitzharris have also had some sort of falling-out. Mama was very short with her when she came round to our house this evening – Mrs Fitzharris got no further than the doorstep – and she looked distinctly tearful after Mrs F. had departed. I asked Fanny whatever was the matter. She said that Mama was preoccupied with whether she should forgive Papa. I asked her ‘for the hats?’, and she replied, ‘why, for everything, Charley’, and walked off, sniffing.

I hope Selena and I never argue.
