[Thursday] October the 26 [1815]
This morning, as usual, was spent in my spinning room. About one o'clock Mr. Beamish came up. After he had taken something to eat, he took his gun and went out to shoot a partridge. I went to git some evergreen and we met in our little bower, where we have passed many happy hours--and today has added another to the number. Mr. B. did not stop to tea, as the evening was disagreeable. -- It grows late and I shall make preparations for bed.
