Saturday. April 21st.

Morning duties regularly performed. I find it necessary to add another page of Record to the number required to be done, which somewhat shortens the time devoted to Geography. After breakfast I went to Mr. King’s and spent two hours looking at the worst likeness of my own face which could easily be found. Upon my return I found a letter from Richardson1 which I read, and wrote one to Abby which occupied me the remainder of the day. In the evening, a thunder storm, the first which we have had this Spring I believe. Miss Roberdeau left us after having enlivened our family society for a week.
