[Saturday] December the 2 [1815]
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.
