Griff writes to Ida of visiting two sisters who had a "fire large enough to roast an ox in a room rather less than two thirds the area of the Bowers' kitchen". He then called upon Mr Bannister, who used to be the concert attendant at the Hallé, and who also had an ox-ready fire. Combined with the warm night, Griff is rather sleepy.
