Do Ladies do that?
Lister faces a heart-breaking decision as Ann Walker's mental state takes an alarming downturn.
From the Journal of Anne Lister
11th January 1833
Her mind was distracted, and she could not say her prayers as she ought to do. Talked and reasoned calmly, then turned, and pretended to sleep. She refused all affection, and I did not press it. She scarcely I think closed her eyes until after 3, when I bade her to say the Lord’s Prayer incessantly until I think she dropped off into a doze for a little while.
