051_Page 49Sunday. May. 30. th. 1841. A cool day. But clear and bright noon. Maria, arrived from Marbletown, this morning. She looks very sallow and thin. Mr H. troubled all the past night with a tooth. ache. has been almost wild, all day. Went to the dentist, Dillon, had the nerve killed, tried all other remidies [sic] with no affect. Men are poor creatures to endure pain, they can seldom sympathise with patient, enduring, woman. Maria, Sis, and I went to Church after dinner, heard an indifferent preacher. A very thin audience, our congregation decreases weekly. Sis fell asleep on my lap. Our dried peach pies delightfull.
