A disageable [sic] damp day, streets wet and muddy. I remained within doors all the morning sewing, and doing a little house work. Simon keeps our house as neat as wax.work, he is a good servant. In the afternoon, I walked to Broadway, for exercise, met Mrs Van [Landvort], and thousands, walking, in despite of the wet streets, and humid air. The children did not walk out.
