1. pg 001Friday. 15. teenth. September. 1843.

A heavy rain, warm south wind blowing in gusts. The whole house drenched with this humid atmosphere. A fire unsupportable, we all felt the heat. Mr.H. complaining of his throat, he is not particular enough in his diet. I cut out Canton flannel nightgowns for Louis, and Father. Sent Bridget for Mrs. Okills bill. Sewed all the evening. Very warm atmosphere.
