Saturday 13th. March. 1852.
Clear and very warm
Mr H. took Louis & Remsen to the
tailors, to get pants, and vests. To Swherins to be measured
for shirts. Remsen went to Downings to eat oysters;
his father treated him, much to his delight.
Louis, and he dressed for dancing school, complaining of
the heat. They look pale and wearied.
Our company came to tea. Charlotte, Rima, Fanny Wood,
Maria, Dr Foggo, [Cornell], Eugene old Mrs Wood, George,
Mr H. and the boys.
Fanny T. did not appear.
We had music, and plays, and the time soon
slipped away. They left before twelve.
Ice, and jelly came rather late, from Wellers.
Sunday. 14. March. 1852.
Julia & I did not go to church.
G took the boys.
It was communion sabbath. I ought to have been there.
but could not feel myself prepared.
This day seemed so lonely.
Our tea table so dull, how much we miss
an agreeable object. Beauty is a powerfull charm;
and it is seldom to be met in the male sex.
It will be some time ere we find it again.
Mr Outlaw & Toliaferro, left for the south to.day.
They will try and find their friend. D. I should
like to witness the meeting.
