A day of showers
Mr H. took the boys to Church.
Julia and I did not go out
I took a tepid bath. went to bed for one hour.
Garret admired the sermon from these words.
“Almost thou persuadest me to be a christian”!!
He went to the tabernacle in the evening. Mr Cleaveland
on the Bible. a fine discourse.
I assisted Julia in writing her Composition on the quill.
Dictated a letter for Louis to his Uncle Benjamin.
Both satisfactory.
My children are not deficient in abilities, if they would
apply themselves. Their characters are different, and
require different treatment.
