Saturday. Feb. 2nd 1850,
Mild showers, almost clear at intervals.
The weather disappoints the children,
Julia wished to promenade.
I employed myself putting every thing in its place; then
took a warm bath, and changed my clothes, a luxury indeed.
My skin troubles me the last two months; I feel
mortified at my coarseness, still do not diet.
Mr H. does not come to dinner to.day. A [min___]
piece of beef, was on our table, not my cut.
The children played in the basement room all day.
The rain fell in torrents in the evening, and before sun.rise.
I love to hear it patter on the roof.
