[Sunday] September the 3 [1815]
Today has been a dull day. -- In the morning I took a walk to my bower and picked some bayberries on my way. -- The afternoon, it rained hard; I wrote a note to Harriet. --There has been no one here today. -- Our old man has gone to take a walk and has not returned. -- I went out to milk. -- It is a stormy night; it thunders and lightens. -- Our milk boy will have a bad time home . -- I have sent my note by him.
