More beautiful than yesterday.
Had some house cleaning done to.day, all the parlour windows washed, I remained at home all day, felt stupid, and walked out with Garret in the evening. Maria, dined with us, she had been to Jersey City. Mr H. did not dine at home. Cold fires affect my head, unless I go in the open air, then the bad affects seem to blow over. They are ruinous to the complexion and eyes mine, suffer sadly.
