[Friday] October the 13 
After various employments of the
day, I am once more seated at my nightly task. -- The first of my morning
was taken up making butter; and secondly, ironing. -- And thirdly, spent
the evening at Mrs. Allen's at Mount Edward.
Sally A., Charlotte, and myself formed the party. -- William
came home with us, and Sally. -- It is a beautiful evening. I should like
to walk two or three miles with an agreeable
companion. The moon is in her full splendour and sheds her silver beams
on all around. How delightful to walk now [that] we can view from
Nature up to Nature's God.
