[Thursday] August the 31 [1815]
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, the 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.
