[Friday] October the 13 [1815]
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.
