Jennie Talmages' birthday
Cloudy--stormed this evening
Went to the dressmaker this A.M. She will make a silk waist too. Miss Gardner will let me know on Friday if she will make my black silk. Have another pair of pillowcases ready to stitch, & a sheet more than half done: worked some on my tray cloth. Had a letter from Mrs. Atwell & she told George & Belle. I have written her I was sorry. I will try to go out before long to see her. Hope to go to Anna's tomorrow.
Miss G'law put a doll all covered up on the lounge to fool Dr. S this morning & told him she had only one sick one & she would not open her eyes. Miss G'law seems very sober today. Am afraid she is worrying about her sister. Mister Higley, the new watchman, is here. Bridget has gone.
