pg 035Tuesday.19.December.1843.
Dull, and misty day. Mild as spring.

I went up to the mantua makers, with a
dark cotton velvet, a school dress for Julie. Gave direction how
it should be made. Called for my collars at washers.
Thought of mothers, but the mud, and wet kept me from
following my inclinations.
Catharine, came in just as I had finished
a note to send her. She had been sitting with Miss Bur-
goyne, and Bell, Harriet, was much composed, and ap.
parently easier. C. remained all day with me, returned
before tea.hour.
Louis unwell to day. he remains from school.
