Saturday. 1.st. of May. 1841. New York. Damp, dark, showering day, quite cool. I was obliged to reprove Nanny for her dilatory manner in the morning. At nine Mr Anelli came to hang our portraits. Garret brought a carpenter to put in the hooks. They appear only tolerable, the light is not very good for G’s, our rooms are too small, and our ceilings too low. Mr A. was not satisfied with them; such beautiful paintings require more room to appear to advantage. We admire them more on a minute examinations, than we did, on a transient inspection. Garret, presented Mr A. with a rest pattern, and pair of gloves. Their generous natures can estimate each ____ ___, in this particular they assimilate We had heavy rain, all the afternoon, and evening. I sat alone, took a warm water bath. My physical troubles all over; even my face is more natural than it has been in two months. Julie’s bonnet came home, it suits her better. There are as great a quantity of migrating souls, as usual on this day, our street presents a continual stream of movers, and moveables.
