[Saturday] October the 14 [1815]
Today has been mostly spent cleaning house. I have twisted a little yarn. -- And wrote some poetry, and mended old stockings. -- Papa has been to town. He brought me a note from Harriet, and my cloth for my pelisseGrandmama come up this afternoon to spend some time. Cousin George has gone to Chester on a short voyage. --This evening is not so pleasant as last; the moon is clouded over and seems to threaten an approaching storm. I think we shall drink October's chilling tear ere Aurora with her rosy fingers opens the golden gates of the east.
