A very warm day. A shower at
four oclock p.m.

I feel the heat sadly to.day; Catharine, was
still miserable, and spent some time on the bed.
But with all her languor, she is the most agreable [sic]
sister I have; I only regret my limited means
will not allow me to give her more pleasures.
She would leave me to.day at five oclock, after
the shower had cooled off the air. I went up
with her, Julie, and Louis also. We walked almost
the entire distance, the children would not walk
all the way. C, did however to my astonishment.
Found all well, took tea, and returned at eight.
