[Sunday] October the 8 [1815]
Sunday. As soon as we done breakfast, Harriet and me walked out to old Colly to git a horse to make up a riding party to go to Mrs. Stuart's at Cole Harbour. -- But we soon returned, disappointed in our expectations of riding single-horse. We sit down and read a little and then dressed ourselves. -- Mr. Beamish came up and dined with us. -- After dinner we got the chaise and went to Cole Harbour. Harriet and Betsy rode, and Mr. Beamish and me walked. The lady of the mansion was from home, but we stopped to tea with the gentleman. We returned home early, as the evening was disagreeable. Mr. Beamish has not gone home tonight.
