Status: Needs Review

Wednesday, July 21st. Very warm. Received a call from Mary Reeve
in the morning - she came to bid me good bye as she
leaves for the country this afternoon whither I hope soon
to join her. Mary seemed rather melancholy, and half
sorry to go though whether it was on mine or Joseph's?
account I could hardly tell - probably on both.
[Served? Sewed?] on a mantilla for Mother most of the day.
Albert came over to tea and spent the evening.
Kate seemed much interested in him - much more so
than in the handsome Isaiah Caulbert who also passed
the evening with us. It was very pleasant - Father
and Mother seemed to enjoy it much. Albert, Isaiah
and Carrie sang several pieces - Albert has his flute
with him. How natural, and how much like old times
it seemed to hear that flute pouring forth its sweet
sounds on the evening air as it was wont to do when
he ws home with us in the life of one household -
before - oh Albert! would your sake that those
days might come back again.
Thursday. Weather the same. Harriet and Douglas reached home
this morning safe and well. Hattie looks better, her trip
has doubtless done her good. Douglas was evidently in high
spirits - squeezed Carrie and I in an unprecedented manner
and frolicked round with us all like a school boy
Their meeting with Kate was quite an affecting one. Douglas [illegible?]
to Brooklyn soon after breakfast and was absent till tea time. Hattie and Kate
were closeted together half of the day, notwithstanding [?-found] times
to relate a good many of her adventures to us all. Carrie and I received a letter from Harriet
