September 20th 1852.

Stone Ridge; New York.

We left for our city home to.day, the weather
was lovely, getting warm.
Maria & children went with us.
I rode with G. in the trotting waggon, expected to
be worn out, but really enjoyed the ride. The air
was exquisite, and my aching bones felt better.
The country looks lovely.
We had a merry time, until the Cars came.
Bade our friends adieu.
The heat uncomfortable in the cars.
Reached home at four oclock.
The girls give us a good tea. I was happy to
get home safe at last.
The children grumbled, no wonder, for they are
cooped up in the city.
