Mild, and misty, sometimes sun. shine. My cold much better, Bridget’s absence makes it nesscssary [sic] for me to work around more than usual; it does me much good. C. very clever to do all that is nesscessary.
I sent Simon up to see if Julie, wanted to come home, she is not tired yet; but prefers staying longer. The boys very little trouble, when she is absent. The house very silent, and still, now that two of the family are absent. No news from Marbletown yet. Navigation free to Kingston. I took a short walk to.day, for health, made a cap in the afternoon. Paid twenty.five cents for the Lace, a cheap concern.
