Very sultry and oppressive.
I did not wish to stir
from my chair to.day. Maria, talked of Staten Island,
but gave up the idea.
Julia took a bath, and copied her Composition.

little baskets for Rhetty & Isabell. A monkey for Cate.
Came home tired.
Julia & Maria went to Mrs [Jaffreys]; she is in the country.
Mr Berger; and wife, two daughters passed the evening
with us. The day is too warm for comfort.

untill evening. Maria, took the children. G. kept at
home, without cause, as heat does not affect him.
We heard Mr Bellows in the evening.
