Beautifull sky, but damp earth.
Many things required my atten-
tion at home to.day, but I put them aside and equipped
my self for the open air. Looked in at some toys.
Tried on my dress at Wittinghams, suited pretty well.
Rode down to see Bell, and found her at home.
Spent two hours with her. Harriet, was rather better
the last three days. Isabela, showed me her presents.
She has both taste, and generosity. I returned home,
fatigued, and spent the afternoon with the children.
intended a visit to Aunt Remsen, but was too tired to put it in execution. Garret, has been reading aloud the “life of Cicero” which completely enchains all our sympathy and admir, ration, for this great patriot, and scholar.
