[Friday] September the 8 [1815]
After my usual work in my dairy, I went to haymaking and worked nearly all day. I took a walk to D'anseville grove and passed a solitary hour in my favourite spot. The beauty of Nature are beginning to fade, and chill winter will soon spread his heavy mantle. -- Then farewell, you rural walks and shady groves. -- I received a note from my friend this evening, and I have just answered it. -- It grows late and I feel very fatigued after my day's work.
