Rainy--cleared at night and a brilliant rainbow completely arched the sky
Wrote in my journal this morning all my leisure time. finished hemming a half dozen napkins. Have felt more light-hearted today. Mr. Jenkins baby has other troubles now. Mr. Weeks wife is very low. A new little girl came this noon. "Aurore Liberty." Miss Mann thinks I am brighter. Well, how can I help being happy!
Smith gave me two fine oranges this fore-noon.
I felt very tired this A.M. but better tonight--had honey & hot biscuit for tea.
