A mild day, rather blustering, and dusty. I was engaged with my domestic affairs all the morning. Mr H. called on Mr Anelli’s to consult about our immense picture. Julie and I went to Mrs Staggs for her bonnet, waited untill it was finish; then paid Mrs Anelli, a visit. Found her at home, and very pleasant as usual. She expressed a great desire for a baby. I spent my evening alone. Mr Anelli, took a cup of tea with us, and brought the frame for the picture. Remsen, called him Tommy.
