0104jTuesday. 3rd December. 1850. .
Mild storm of rain.
I do not regret this rain, it
gives me a chance to get through my affairs.
My work draw is still full, altho my domestics and help
mates are numerous. Maria, takes her share, while Nanny Quin
does what she can, still the cutting & furnishing desolves [sic] on me.
Maria received a letter from Kate Hasbrouck this morning, her
first attempt.
I have persuaded Louis & Remsen to sleep together; they agree
very well thus far.
