A beautiful mild day.
I remained at home this morning, attending my domestic affairs.
Altered a worked collar.
Went to see the “Planetarium” at Niblo’s. A beautiful moonlight evening, and the fear of not seeing this interesting piece of mechanism drew throngs of people, so that the Ball room was a complete Jam.
We went early and secured a fine seat, our view of the object, being clear, and unobstructed. the addresses were common place, but the subject was so highly interesting, and the Machine so perfect as to delight the audience. I should like to attend a course of Lectures on the subject, and regret not haveing gone to those which have been given on the Planetarium.
We saw the comet to night, that is its train.
