Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

Wednesday March 18th George Cromwell has brought his wife here to-day. I hope she may like her new home. I am not particularly prepossessed in her favor at first sight. But first impressions are often erroneous. I hope I may like her, for I have no companions here. I introduced her to her new home. 'Tis a dismal looking place; but a cheerful temper can do much towards making it a happy pleasant home.

Thursday 19th I received two letters to-day, one from Emma Goble. She writes well, I love to read her letters. She is a dear good girl, one of my childhood's friends; and one from Aunt Eliza {Danson?}. I love her she is kind-hearted and strives among many troubles and discouragements to do right. May God Bless her.
