Anita W., age unknown, Virginia

I commenced to take another session of music lessons–about 1 O’clock I got a carriage and called on Mrs. Wigfall, Hill–Haxall & Reagan.

After dinner I went to Church and to confession. Met Mrs. James Purcell, we went home with her and took Tea, she made some delicious Egg-nog. After that the Captain went to see his friend Stephens who is quite ill.
