Monday, Sam and his party set out for Rochester and Chatham, where they told ghost stories.
he had a boat trip, got drunk, and kissed all the ladies. Wednesday
he met a singing parrot and enjoyed some music but was a little distracted by Rebecca. More snogging and joking with friends. Thursday
it was goodbye to Rebecca with a pang of guilt, and on the way home he stole some beer and played some practical jokes. So to bed very sleepy for last night’s work, concluding that it is the pleasantest journey in all respects that ever I had in my life.
