[Wednesday] December the 27 [1815]
We all spent a very pleasant evening with plenty of dancing. We kept it up till four o'clock this morning. --Mama and Mrs. Allen came up to see us in the evening. --Our dancing affected us so little that Eliza and me and Mr. Beamish have been on our lake sliding all the morning, and now Eliza and myself, with Mr. Beamish, is going to walk down to Aunt's.
