Mr Holmwood (he is actually the Hon. Arthur Holmwood, only son of Lord Godalming), is coming up here very shortly, as soon as he can leave town, for his father is not very well, and I think dear Lucy is counting the moments till he comes. She wants to take him up in the seat on the churchyard cliff and show him the beauty of Whitby. I daresay it is the waiting which disturbs her. She will be all right when he arrives.
27 July - No news from Jonathan. I am getting quite uneasy about him, though why I should I do not know, but I do wish that he would write, even if it was only a single line.
