A clear, pleasant sky, but the storm has cleared off, very cold. I am anxious to get out for exercise, but I think the streets too damp to travel far. Dressing is a great trouble in New York, we are obliged to be so particular. I went up to Broadway, felt cold, my boots too thin for the season. Kept the children within doors, they all seem complaining. Bought 1 yd ½ ribbon for my lilac silk apron. 18 pence. The afternoon was cold, so I remained at home.
