[Friday] October the 6 [1815]
This morning I was very busy in my dairy, churning and making butter; Harriet was helping me churn. The remainder of the day we sit upstairs reading and knitting. Patience and Perseverance is the title of the book we are perusing; I think it a very good thing. The weather has been rather dull today--which prevented us from taking a walk. I have left them all seated round the table at their domestic employments, some sewing and others knitting and Papa at the head reading. -- I must hurry to return to my work or I shall be in disgrace. -- All's well!
