...I note that I have only briefly mentioned the picnic which cemented my acquaintance with my brother’s friend, the Wilde boy, and that afternoon is uppermost in my mind as the weather in our fair hamlet has turned rather more torpid in these passing days, even our celebrated sea breezes do little to enliven the atmosphere.
