Status: Needs Review

Monday May 3rd Bright and warm. Mr Murphy had remained
all night and after breakfast before the gentlemen left for
the city we spent a very pleasant hour in the parlor.
Albert and Mary Emma bade us good bye and left for
their new boarding place in Houston st. N.Y.
Mr. E left this "Wide Wide World" for our benefit and
accordingly evening found me entranced in the first
volume. Went round with my tracts in the afternoon
Was well received except by our Catholic family who
refused any tracts, but of smiles and encouraging words
there was no lack. Most are glad to see, and glad to
receive what I have to give, and [illegible?] I feel very
happy in the performance of this duty and pray that
thus I may accomplish much good.
Carrie's right eye has troubled her considerably for the last
two or three days, and to-day it was so much swollen
and inflamed that Mother sent for Dr Jones who
pronounced it to be erysipelas. It makes her very sleepy
which she considers quite a good thing as she can do nothing
else. She retired very early. Mr Murphy spent the evening here
Proffesor Abadie sent us a family ticket for the May
Queen Festival to be celebrated by his pupils on Wednesday
evening next. Miss Julia Waterman brought it in at
his request and made quite a call.
