[Friday] September the 1 [1815]
This has been a very rainy day, and I have been sewing all day till about five o'clock when it left off raining and Mama and me went and picked some peas and beans. -- I have been altering a frock and working some trimming. -- It has rained very hard today and I fear much of our hay is spoilt. I sincerely hope tomorrow may be fine. -- It is so cold this evening that I have been sitting by the fire. --Winter approaches fast and we have had very little warm weather.
