I read the paper to Mr. Burgess. I went to female prayer meeting. Mrs. G. W. Bailey only there. Met at Mrs. Burgess'. Kate, Annie and Maggie got home tonight. Kate bought green damask curtains and fixings for parlor windows - 34 dollars, stand of cruets - 12 dollars, herself a cloak 18, me a brown silk dress, corded, $20.25, Lucy a china tea set for 16 dollars and a few smaller items. I think she has performed her commissions admirably.
