Status: Needs Review

Sunday Jan 18th Snowed hard all day. Sarah and I felt
disappointed very much as we of course were unable
to keep either of our engagements. The day passed
pleasantly at home, however, mostly in reading.
Mr Murphy came over in the afternoon, and added
much to the cheerful enjoyment of the evening.
We sang and talked till near tea _ then retired.
Monday. Bright. Fine sleighing. Sarah, Carrie and I practised
vocal music. G. Hudson spent the afternoon
very pleasantly with us. On account of the cold we
all spent the evening at home.
Tuesday. "The coldest day we have had for thirteen years",
said the papers. It is the coldest day, that I can recollect.
Sarah spent the day with her relatives in New York, [?].
She thinks of returning home to-morrow. _ I made a
light silk apron. _ Sarah came back about dusk.
About seven A?] Daniel & George Hudson called and accompanied
[with?] us to the Culbert's. It was a freezing walk, but
pleasant company, and the delightful evening we
spent on arriving there, made ample amends.
Annie took a great fancy to Sarah, and E.D. was [quite?]
attentive to the same lady. Besides Elizabeth, [Marjorie?]
and Annie, were their three brother Alexander, [Nat?]
and Isaiah, who with ourselves and Dr and Mrs [Ach?]
comprised the company. Mr Murphy and Nat were [ex?]
but the difficulty in crossing the ferries prevented them

[written vertically in left margin, the following:]
We came home about twelve. The river
frozen so completely to-day that many walked
from [?] to New York on the ice and back.
Many of the ferry boats ever obliged to stop
running. Mary R. spent most of the P.M. with me.
