A changeable day of sunshine, and gloom.

Julie, and I set off for a long ride, we went down to see Mrs Brown, sat with her a short time, then rode up to mothers, and then home. Mrs Brown will spend to.morrow with me, as her husband dines out. I found Catherine complaining as usual, she looks thin, and pale. Mother was well, and cleaning her bed- room, that is haveing it cleaned. When I came home Garret had beat me; and ^was waiting patiently for his dinner My appetite was good not haveing taken a lunch. I did not go out again, but sat at home all the afternoon.
