A wintry sky, but clear, and cold. Julie, and I went to Church in the morning, she complained of cold. the Church was thinly atten. ded, and a stranger preached. I walked two miles with G. after dinner, but did not go to Church again. I spent the afternoon reading, and in the evening continued my perusal of “Genesis, with Scotts Commentaries.” Ann Shanly’s lover arrived to her great joy, they think of getting married soon. Simon is improving, and gets quite handy. even at waiting on table. Garret not quite well to.day; Remsen, and Julie out of order also.
