[Friday] November the 10 
This has been rather a busy day
with me--churning and washing all the morning. -- This afternoon I wrote
a note to Harriet, sent it by the milk boy. -- This has been a rainy day,
and everything is very dull this time of the year. -- The evenings now
seem longer than the days. I have been sitting knitting and watching the
time for nine o'clock to retire for the night.
