[Wednesday] September the 20 [1815]
I have been spinning again all day. I expect I shall grow like a weed in the shade, for I go no farther than my dairy and from there to my spinning room. -- Papa has been to town today. He brought me a note from Harriet and a box of wafers. -- I am sorry to hear that Mrs. Beamish and Miss Beamish are not very well. -- Charlotte has gone to drink tea with Sarah Ann Allen, and Papa has gone to Mr. Allen's this evening. I have been sitting by the fire knitting. -- It is a fine evening and I sincerely hope it will be fine tomorrow.
