” — This evening, soon after 8 o’clock Mr Lloyd called me in to the private office and there entered into conversation in which he told me that Mr George Lea proposed to advance my wages to 20s per week, he being well satisfied with my conduct. In this course of which he gave me two glasses of port. By my word this is surprising news. — 
Buckled shoes toed and heeled 1s 6d.”
