Saturday 24. Jan. 1852.
Beautifull, bright day; Quite moderate.
I am charmed to see the sun so bright
but must not enjoy the walking myself.
My foot still painfull, and a nervous head.ache,
makes me feel anything but pleasant.
Julia, dressed and expected a sleigh at 11. as it did
not arrive, she went to Fanny’s; invited her to go to her
Aunt Bell’s this evening. They came at six and went
up to 19th st. paid mother a long visit.
Took tea with me, and then went down to Isabella’s.
Dr Duvall & Outlaw, Fanny, Julia. Louis & Remsen in a fine
double horse sleigh.
Mr H. remained with me, and my head felt better
when the house was still.
G. read the “Forrest trial” and I darned stockings.
They returned home, safe before 11. and took a ride before
comeing [sic] in the house. Passed a delightfull evening.
Maria, Eugene and Mr Center, the guests.
Bell, and [Ferdinand] very agreable [sic], but put out with G. & [J]
I sent a note to Bell, and will go this week if
The Plummers, [sic] again to.day. The waste pipe
burst in the bath room, and the water dripping in streams
through the ceilings, ruining the hall.
Croton pipes, are a troublesome luxury, and we are
often in trouble, this extreme cold has frozen them
so we do not draw any water up stairs.
