Monday 24th May, 1852. Damp and showery. To-day the carpets
were taken up in the parlors, and the operations of scrubbing,
white-washing, and paiting commenced therin.
Sewed in mother's room most of the day. Mary Reeve
called in the afternoon. In the evening occupied myself
with reading and writing in Father's study while Natty
sat beside me planning a house. Albert intends
building soon, and has set Natty to work to plan a
suitable house, accordingly he spends most of his
everings with his pencil and the yardstick.
His drawings exhibit a good deal of ingenuity & calculation
Tuesday. Very warm. Sewed steadily all day, and tired of
sitting still, I took a pleasant stroll with Natty in the
evening. Miss Howland called in the afternoon but
observing the status of the factors did not come in.
Wednesday ,, Pleasant. We received a visit from cousin Thomas
King who is one of the Delegates from the State of Florida
to attend the Democratic Convention at Baltimore
which meets for the purpose of selecting a candidate
for the coming Presidential election. He took dinner
with us and left for N.Y. soon after.
Copied a specification for Mr Murrow in the afteroon
also sewed. Our new carpet was just put down this afternoon
and looed very pretty; the furniture was also rearranged in
the parlors and things began to look quite natural again.
Mr Murphy came over soon after tea. Evening in reading
