Louisa visits Lord and Lady Haslemere but all is not well. Margaret Haslemere is obviously unhappy, at least in part because she believes Charlie doesn't love her. She has stopped eating and grows weaker by the day. Charlie has become disinterested but at least in part because he doesn't know how to make his wife happy. Amid the gloom, Louisa gives him some good advice and suspects the servants of spreading rumors and gossip. Louisa also gets to see Lottie. Written by garykmcd
