[from the diary of Mary S. Boyden]
Friday 25th Fanny & Father & I went to call on the
Pages at Cobham Park. Found them a charming
family. Miss Ellen & Miss Harriet Branham
came to spend the day - Maria took herself & child
off to Gordonsville this morning, so we have no
dependance but Sarah. But we did very well-
Mr John Lasley came to see father on business
this evening - We were much pleased with him.
Lilla & Fanny went to a little party at Mr
Rober Lewis' & had to stay all night.
