[Thursday] August the 31 
This morning I was sewing, as
it was so unpleasant I could not go out. -- I worked a piece of trimming
and altered two frocks. -- This afternoon,
Miss Prescotts and Aunt Sally came
and spent the evening--and their brother.
-- I was very busy sewing when they came, for we did not expect company--the
weather was so unpleasant. They have just gone and I think they will have
a muddy walk, and the night is very dark. -- I hope that loving brother
of theirs will not leave them in the mud.
