[Saturday] December the 2 
This morning I have been very
busy preparing for company. I went to Mrs. Allen's to invite the
girls . Betsy came home this morning.
After dinner, Papa came home and brought
Harriet and Maria to be godmothers to Georgiana
and Joanna. Before we got dressed, the parson came--Mr.
Ingles from Chester performed the ceremony. Mr. Beamish did not arrive
till the ceremony was over. Papa stood proxy for him to Georgiana. -- The
evening we spent in dancing.
