I danced the first two with Mr Maybury, then Mr Denny, Mr Wooton, Mr Blount, and Mr Wooton again; then, a simpering coxcomb, Mr Cavendish, followed by Mr Wickham. That gentleman danced and teased me by turns—he has a way of looking into my eyes which I find most disconcerting.

The mood was very subdued in church today and the little groups that formed outside were apt to speak in whispers; it is as though the very soul of the place has died.
