1889 diary p13 Tubbs
« on: Friday 02 February 18 22:04 GMT (UK) »
Any help with the xxxs and related text here is much appreciated.

"Davis drove me over to meet him, Costume riding suit. Brown leather boots tie of fearful & wonderful design & delightful little leather cap price one guinea, am always interested in Tubbs clothes. Mr Wood came soon after, Tubbs & I from a coin of vantage on the building watched to see the affect the pulling down would have on him. He"

The folks here are brightening my transcription from dark uncertainty to wonder. Thank you.

The bold text is thanks to help here.

JenB, Coin / coign of vantage is a wonderful revelation, quite new to me. I am deeply impressed. How did you resolve that?

sparrett, I think at first sight it is 'tasteful' but on further looking a now think it is 'fearful'. What do you think?

Thank you to you both.

Could it be tie of fearful & wonderful design?
