Another sweet day. A summers sun. We have resolved to arise earlier than we do at present, for a wonder. M H. makes the proposition, to which I cordially agree. My ankle a little stiff this morning, but no pain. I intended to keep quiet to.day, for fear of a return of the pain. We are sitting without fire, the air is so lovely and mild. My cold is much better, indeed quite well. Remsen does not appear quite well to.day. Julie, fell in the mud gutter, with her hoople. A new pair of boots came home from Middletons.
