jan 27Thursday. 27.th. January. 1842.

Clear sky, with high wind, not very cold.

We arose at out usual late hour, did not get through breakfast, untill nine oclock.
Children all well. I cut a pair pantaloons out for Louis, sent in the store for lineing.
Finished ruffling a pillow case for Julie’s bed. Taught her, her lessons, she is smart to learn. Think it too blustering to walk; feel disinclined for exhibition. Garret, brought me an old friend this morning, I did not expect her last night. Ann, making some honey cake on trial, to.day.
Remained at home all day. The children walked out, for fresh air, but it blew rather too hard.  Put my feet in hot water to.night. Mrs [Francse], paid me a visit. Garret, engaged in the store, untill ten oclock.
