between these two houses the one void of almost every necessary, filthy and disgusting, the other far smaller and less commodious, neat, comfortable & pleasant. Mr. & Mrs. Cromwell came home with us and spent the evening so has passed away another Sabbath day. O! how much more profitably it might have been spent

Monday 30th I came up to the mill about 5 o'clock this morning I wish I had time and energy to take such a walk every morning I believe it would do me good p{illegible}! I have time for I generally sleep there. 'Tis so pleasant to take another nap in the morning. I am naturally too indolent to rise early. that is a poor excuse. Disapointed the girl that was coming this morning is sick. Sent after another just ten minutes too late she had gone away to seek employment I am vexed but what cant be cured must be endured I might as well laugh as cry.
