Status: Needs Review

Thursday.. June 24th. Cloudy and cool. Was not very well
and after a busy morning found myself unfit for anything
in the afternoon. Mary Reeve called. also Kate Skinner
and her sister Maggie. __ Evening in reading.

Friday.. Pleasant. Sewed all day and went to bed very
early with a headache. Nothing very important occurred
Called on Mrs Dickinson [Dr?] M. and borrowed a directory
for Harriet, and in the evening she made out a list
for her wedding cards.
Saturday.. Warm. Was not well. Carrie and I polished the
parlor furniture in the morning. Sewed all the afternoon.
Mr Murphy came over and brought the wedding cards
and also a beautiful Spanish fan for Harriette from
Mrs Brinckerhoff. __ The cards looked very pretty.
I never fancied Harriet's intended name before, but
on the cards I liked it very much. Looking at them
I began to realize that she was soon to leave us
for the heart and home of another, but however unwill
-ing we may be to part with her it is much consolation
to reflect that if there be faith and trust on earth
she has assuredly fallen into good hands.
D. and He spent the afternoon in the study directing
their cards
