Friday. Still very warm. Busy with my needle part of the
though it must be confessed, not very steadily; listening
to Harriet, singing with Kate and playing with Douglas
who was home all day occupied considerable of the time
that was left from my usual household duties.
Albert and Mary Emma came over to tea. Mr Otis an
intimate friend of theirs also called in the evening
Albert discovered that he was acquainted with a gentleman
living next door to us an excellent player on the guitar
so what should he do but go in there and practice
with him and in the middle of the evening came back
with a polite invitation from the lady and gentleman
to come in there to hear Albert and Mr Clark play.
We accepted the invitation - were treated to some very
fine music - and afterwards to some cake and lemonade
- [wine?] was also carried around but no one took it.
We returned about eleven o'clock. Albert, M.E. and Mr Otis
then left and we soon dispersed to our chambers.
Saturday - Was very busy all day. Harriet and Kate spend the
day shopping in New York. Caroline went over to consult
Dr Banning in the afternoon. Annie came in soon
after dinner and spent the afternoon pleasantly with
Mother and I. Carrie returned about six o'clock and with
Annie we went into [Grand st?] to purchase dresses for ourselves
but finding nothing to suit us we returned without them.
illegible? was with us to tea - we all spent the evening very pleasantly together
We were treated to some excellent ice-cream which Tillie? made
today with a little assistance
from Mother.
