moderate, & the prospect for ice gone - for this
time. Mr Mountjoy with us another day - The
doctor called to see Maria who was taken with
another fit today - & alarmed us. He was introdu=
=ced to our guest, but stayed but a short time.
I began to give Mr M - music lessons as he calls
them - He really learns very readily, & insists
on learning one of Henrietta's pieces - bass & all.
Letter from Hanson today - saying that Mr Coffman
is coming up, & wishing us to send his jacket &
a blanket by him on his return - Letter also
from Henrietta Gouldlman - I have not thought
upon my God as I ought this day! O God have mercy!
