Mercy Coles and John A. Macdonald ...

The Quebec conference is still on, though almost finished. They will leave for Montreal on Thursday, October 27 at 4:00.

“Wednesday [October 26th, 1864]
            We went for a drive today. We went through the Lower Town to see where the rock fell and crushed the people to death [on Friday Oct. 14 – see the earlier post]. ...
            I went to dinner in the evening. John A. [Macdonald] sat along side of me. What an old Humbug he is. He brought me my dessert into the Drawing Room. The conundrum.”

Oh the fun of speculation and reading between the lines.
