[Wednesday] November the 8 [1815]
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.
