A clear day: out shopping: went in the afternoon to the
Park, with sister, Debbie, Eliza, Sarah, Maggie, Eddie Stabler
and Bennie Miller: the girls all went to the Fair after
supper: Aunt Sally Gilpin, Uncle Edward and Aunt Lydia
came to stay here.

A pleasant day; tho' cloudy a part of the day, in the
morning we had sermons from Sarah Hunt, George
Freeman and John Hunt; in the afternoon from Sarah
Hunt, William Dorsey, Mary Bradiway, and Phebe
Hadley: I dined at Sisters with Anne Ahrens; to Gardner's
to tea; a great many there.

The Park, the Fair? Is something exciting happening here? Also, are any of the names of the people delivering sermons of historical significance?


Ellen began to write her first entry immediately after "27th.", but changed her mind after beginning to write an "A" - so it's nothing to transcribe.
