In spite of wind and wet weather, we had a glorious New Year's Day, by sending the tilted cart for Tom Langstaff and his fiddle, and playing from one in the day to one in the night, except at our meals, where, with Signor Sola's merry face and jokes, we were not a moment free from glee and harmony.
