[Monday] September the 18 [1815]
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.
