A fine, cool day
Mrs Swain took a carriage full of
boys to the barbers. Brought Mr Swain home quite sick from
fever. A cousin George Swain, staid with us two days.
Mr Hasbrouck came up in the evening with his trotting horse.
and waggon. he unloaded a basket of peaches, a bag of Clavet,
a load of sugar, nutmegs, and grater. A bundle of dresses
black muslin for Julia & I. A gingham for her, none for me.
Letter paper, dirty clothes, and new papers.
He is well, and told us mothers family would be up on
Tuesday. I trust the rooms will suit them.
I went in the Church with Louis. My head ached very
much all day; mouth dry & bitter.
Sunday. 17 Aug. 1851.
A storm of rain.
We all welcomed this rain;
the country sadly parched.
The basket of Peaches suffered and the boys teased their
Aunt Maria & Julia, for eating so many & taking peppermint [sic].
We looked for Margaret, she did not come.
G. displeased at my letting her go to the city. Sarah went to
the dock in all the rain for her. Garret escorted the Miss
Leggets home, was caught in the rain. Borrowed some clothed from E.
