Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

Thursday 26th Called to-day on Mrs. Cromwell. I like her better. She seems like a quick neat little person. It has been a beautiful day The ice bound {rigor?} of old winter has at length passed away before the genial health of spring. Glad, joyous Spring I dearly love spring, everything both animate & inanimate seems uttering a song of rejoicing.

Friday 27th Mrs. Cromwell called to-day and we visited the mill; such a continual whir & buzz of machinery it all looks so complicated. 'tis amusing to watch it work. I like to see it. I have written a letter today to Emma Goble I received one this morning from J. G. I love to get letters from my friends; I know then they have not forgotten me.

Saturday 28th Received a letter this morning from my dear cousin Jo with a pressing invitation to visit them next summer.
