Fair and cold
As my life here is so varied, I have concluded to keep a diary for one year. Had a letter from Auntie. She seems pleased with my little gifts, but seems disheartened by losses.

And yet I am sure it will all end well.
Party went off nicely. Lots of company. I am tired. Geo. R. called this evening.
