Sunday. 22nd Feb. /52.
Wet gloomy day.
The wet street, and rain
kept me from church.
Mr H. complains of a pain, and looks pale; I wish
he would lie in bed; and take some remedy.
Put a mustard plaster to night. Rubbed with liniment
Commenced useing [sic] Killingers fluid to make G.s
hair grow, put it on night and morning with Faith.
Rain, and damp ness.
Mr H. still complains of his
side, but would not take any remedies, went down
to his office.
He returned and took a large plate of oysters on top of a
large quantity, already stowed away. Mr Swherin haveing [sic]
treated him. Too much of a good thing, sent
him to bed, almost sick, and full of regrets.
I cannot enter into such distress, it seems so silly
for a Man, to act like a child.
G. has no resolution, to resist temptation.
Tuesday. 24th Feb.
Mild as spring. Clear sun shine.
I went to walk, stopped at [Ginochi’s],
looked at book racks.
Bought three collars for Julia, and velvet bows for wrist.
Took back twelve shillings from her purse.
Mr Leati, read us some of his
poetry. he reads well.
Dr D. came in late; I received him in my room
until Mr L. had left. He lent me two cents. to pay
Mr H. in bed and asleep.
