[Monday] September the 18 
I have spent the most of my day
in spinning. -- Papa, Mama, and Phebe went to Mrs.
Stuart's this afternoon. Papa has just returned without Mama and Phebe.
It rained so hard they could not come home. -- And I shall have to sleep
without my bedfellow tonight. -- Mr. Beamish left here very early this
morning, before I was up. No doubt he arrived time enough for breakfast.
-- This afternoon I went to the orchard and got some currants, and took
a walk and got some blackberries before the rain come on.
