16th Thursday Mary Ann spent the evening here.
17 When I came from lessons found Em there was glad to see her but it is provoking to be so interrupted in my studies. Mrs. Hughes was over a few moments. Called at Mr. (?).
I received a letter and band box from Sarah to day. Aunty dropped Eva at Chicago where she is to stay till after the holidays.
Poor child I wish she were here. The box contained my bonnet and hood and Willyâ€™s & (?) Photographs so natural they are.
