[Saturday] November the 4 
As Saturday is generally a busy
day, I had not much time to spare in the morning. -- My afternoon I spent
reading. Papa has been in town today. He got home to dinner. He brought
me a small note from Harriet. -- Maria has promised to come over tomorrow
to spend some time with us. I hope it may be a fine day. -- Mary Ann went
to Dartmouth this morning.
Sunday] November the 5 
This is Sunday. After I had dressed
myself, I wrapped a large flannel shawl round me and my book and sat myself
down by my window. After I sat some time with my eyes oftener cast to the
road than on my book, I beheld my friends coming up the avenue --Mr. and
Miss Beamish. -- After we had dined, Maria, Charlotte, and myself, with
Mr. B., took a walk to Mrs. Potts. We found Mrs. Brinley there. I requested
the pleasure of her company to tea at the Grove, but she declined the invitation.
We sit some time and then took our leave of the two widows. We came home
through the walk of the castle. When we arrived, we found Mr. and Mrs.
Allen here. They spent the evening with us. --Mr. B. has taken my bed tonight.
[Monday] November the 6 
Mr. B. left us very early this
morning. -- After breakfast I sent for Mrs. Brinley's pelisse for Betsy
to cut mine by. Maria and me have been sitting sewing all day. We have
nearly finished it. -- After the girls were all gone to bed, Mama, Maria,
and myself sit over the fire ember till quite late, talking of old family
[Tuesday] November the 7 
We have spent our day sewing.
No person has been in, nor we have not been out. -- We heard from town
this evening by the milk boy. Maria received some work and me some silk
to finish my pelisse.
[Wednesday] November the 8 
Maria and me spent most of our
morning upstairs, looking over some old poetry and letters till we were
almost froze. -- Papa went to town this morning. -- Mary Ann came from
Dartmouth today. -- In the afternoon, Maria, Betsy, and myself walked down
to drink tea with Eliza. -- We met a drunken Indian--which alarmed us a
little. -- George and James came home with us and stopped to supper with
us. -- I think it will be late before they get home.
[Thursday] November the 9 
Mr. Beamish came over this morning
to go a-riding with us, but the weather is so disagreeable we gave up all
though t of it. -- Mr. B. took his gun and went out till dinner, but met
with no sport. Maria went home with him this afternoon. -- I walked to
the gate with them. -- On my way home, I stopped at my little bower. --
It is now bereft of all its beauty.
