Sunday. January. 2.nd. 1842.

A clear, cold day, a change from yesterday.

I did not go to Church, found my throat
inflamed, and a cold comeing on.
Garret, went twice, the children did not go
out. My time was spent in reading, and
in reflections on the past, a melancholy retro-
spection of past days presenting themselves
to my memory.
