Kate went to town to see the dentist and the mantuamaker. She wants to get a traveling dress of princess cloth made, also a brown corded silk which I gave her. Miss Lucy Brigham engaged to do them. Her bonnet, shawl & gloves and dress trimmings came by express from Cincinnati and are very handsome. William got her spoons in the city, the best I ever saw, the large ones were 25 dollars for six, the small ones $10. Mrs. Lizzie Walton & Mrs. Clarke did her shopping.
As usual there were a great many in to see William & do business. Col. Moore, A. S. Bailey, Isaac Hopkins, Joe Skipton & etc.
Maggie was here and helped Lucy on the quilt which is being quilted for Kate.
A mantua was a kind of dress. Kate's wedding was to take place in about two weeks.
