Status: Needs Review

Wednesday June 16th Heat almost insupportable.
We all spent the day in sewing. Mr Murphy took tea
with us and afterwards in company with his dear
intended and Starr and Annie went off a walking
I spent the evening at home in reading.
Thursday. Temperature the same. Sewing again occupied
most of the day. Annie finished a sweet little bridal
hat for Harriet on which she has been employed
since Tuesday. We all pronounced it the prettiest one
we have seen this season. There seems to be no
limit to Annie's task and ingenuitty. She can make
almost everything necessary for a lady's attire and
that in the best style. Certainly no milliner could
out do her in the production of so pretty a hat.
Mr Murphy was perfectly delighted with it, he likes
elegant and expensive things as much as anyone, perhaps
more so than a minister should but Hattie's agrees with
him perfectly and says she shall dress just as she pleases
if she is a minister's wife and in this respect she differs
some from the lady of "The Sunny Side" yet there is no
doubt but that Harriet will well perform her part
and going hand in hand with her dear Douglas willcome
as a heaven-sent blessing whereever she shall be called
Starr bade us Good Bye in the morning. Annie spent the
day with us and returned home late in the afternoon when
it began to growcool.
Mr Murphy, Harriet, Carrie and I took tea and spent the
evening delightfully with the Culberts. Josiah accompanied
Carrie and I home about eleven o'clock.
