pg 30Monday. 7.th. February. 1842.

Overcast, and rain, not cold.

We arose rather late, our blinds being shut, and Julie no longer with us to groan and grunt,” at day light. My cold much better; chest still delicate. Mended a pair of black silk stockings, patched Louis coat, mended Garret unmentionables. Disagreable [sic] employments, shape them as you will, to my delicate organs. The afternoon was so dark, I spent it in walking through the rooms.
Sewed in the evening, while Garret read alone.
A criticism on “Sir Robert Peel,” the statesmen.
Spent two hours composeing, a gift for Julie.
My powers of writeing are not exercised sufficiently
to make it an agreably or easy task.
