A beautifull day, to commence this usually chilly

I went up for Sis this morning, found her too much pleased to come, altho she cried, when I returned home. Mrs Smith, and Emily, an unfortunate child, had called to see her. My morning soon slipped away, and I re- turned only in time for dinner. I called at Mrs Bloodgood, and found her in bed, with a little girl beside her, so my two dresses must await her recovery. Mrs Hale from Sing Sing, surprised me with a visit this afternoon, she is quite well, and gay as ever. Heard Dr Cox lecture to.night on “History”, he was very good and quite jovial. This was the introductory Lecture. G. of course was pleased with his friend.
