0100November. 1850.
Lovely Indian Summer.
Charming to promenade. Prepare for the
approaching cold, adding to our wardrobes, the comfortable
things of this life.
Our friends from the country visited us, Dr Hasbrouck
his wife, Maria & Miss E. Cantine. We went twice to
hear Jenny Lind sing; she is truly charming. The second
time I went my seat was so near that every tone & look from
her eye or voice fell upon my soul, there ever to remain.
Garret gave me a superb “Opera glass,” worth 40 $.
Mrs Beane, & Mrs Dr Smith, called to see me, we recalled old times.
