Monday. May. 10.th 1840 A lovely morning; some flying clouds. I felt much better, after a good nights rest. Went around to Mrs Stagg’s. Bought some cotton for darning stocking. Sent Bridge, and the children to “nineteenth st”; to spend the day. Kept Remsen at home; Cutting teeth torments the poor little fellow; makes him fretfull. Garret’s new drab d’ete coat* came home.
