Thursday. May. 20th. 1841. A delightfull, summers day at last, no rain, or wind. Had our bedroom ceiling mended, a dirty piece of business; the carpet taken up. Nanny cleaned the rooms. I took a short walk, found it too warm, felt weak from the affects of a Seidbts powder. Mrs Newby, and Mrs Grey called on me. After dinner Julie, and I walked out, she is rather trouble- some as a companion. Severn Hasbrouck, was the bearer of a letter to Maria. Laird, staid all night also, he bought us a sample of tea to try I went to bed at nine oclock.
