Em & Mary accepted and so did I. Had the excruciating pleasure of his ride home. 24 Christmas eve. Eliza B--- Amanda & Belle (?) called. That sleigh ride was taken. We went to Mr. Crandallâ€™s in the South field and while there had a very pleasant time Em Mary and I. I suppose will all claim to have gone with George for I am certain he was the only gentleman in the load I would care to have it said I went with.
