[Saturday] September the 9 [1815]
After my usual Saturday's work, I went out and made hay till night. Papa was in town this morning; he brought me a note from Harriet. She has not been very well. Captain Osburn has returned from New York.

While we were all out making hay this afternoon, Uncle Coleman and Eliza came. They came out and worked with us till we finished--when it began to rain. We have been sitting by the kitchen fire warming ourselves--the weather is so cold.
