Clear and beautifull day.. A summers sun.

I made some pies to. day, they were too poor to eat. Julia spent the day with her grandmother. Road down to [Atiule’s] music store, with Louis. Left my music to be bound 1$ .50. new music 2$ 50 cts. to be added. Rode up to Mrs. Okills; sat a few moments with her…

She thinks Julia too young to commence writeing. Walked home under a burning summer sun. Louis, a tedious “cavalier servente” [a lover or suitor]  Mr H. did not dine at home. A Letter from Cairo to Maria Hasbrouck. Sent Ellen for Julie. G came home late.
