Sunday. 23d June.
Showers, and hot sunshine.
I was not able to go out, as my
whole system was dull & disturbed. Sat quietly in
my room, composed my mind the boys went to Church. Garret, sat in the parlour reading, all day but not the Bible.
A tremendous rain, fell, the wind almost ruining our trees. Our cellar & kitchen full of water; the cess.pool must be over flowing.
A lovely sun set & rain.bow closed the tornado.
Magnificent moon.light night.

Very pleasant day.
I went out to shop after
break fast, took Julia’s mantilla to be washed.
Met Margaret Newby. Washed up the Decantors.
Took a fine nap. Garret slept an hour on the bed after
dinner. Mrs Chenery, made me an ageable [sic] visit.
She looks beautiful after all her sickness, the twins
Julia returned from school agitated, she presented her gift to
Mr Atkins, he made some affecting remarks. “Partings are afflictions”.
Mrs O] kissed her, gave her a knowing look, about the
Composition prize; but every thing is uncertain. The girls
seem in great distress of mind, about their “Farewells.”
