Monday, Feb. 24

This morning Marion was ready to go to town but we had first a thunder shower and then a tempest of snow, the most violent of the season.  So she remains till tomorrow.  Two colored girls got off the cars & stopped here to warm.  The display of jewelry on these sable damsels was quite wonderful.

In the typescript of the journal, Mary Frances Dawes Beach omitted the last two lines which were crossed out in the original journal.
