[Tuesday] September the 12 [1815]
I was carding and spinning all the morning by myself. --And Eliza has had a large wash of two pair of stockings. In the afternoon Mama and the girls came up in the spinning room with me. Eliza and Charlotte sewed and Mama helped me spin. -- After our work was over, we went to the barn and had a swing and a romp in the hay. -- Mama was to go to town today, but the rain prevented her. -- There was to be some fireworks performed tonight; but the rain, I suppose, will put a stop to it.
