3-1 Clear- Fine- Cold hard Frozen but cold moderated considerably. Mrs Rawn [?] to Rev. Albert Boones’ [?] [Presbn.] Ch. where we heard a deeply interesting Sermon from Mr. Boone from the good book [?] early and the Will he found there.

I felt frequently that Not I could [?] [appear] any time and even after I left the church I felt for a long time that a flood [?] would be a relief. Spent afternoon at my Hotel and at 5 ½ PM went to Mr. Sims’ in 17th St near Spruce by Express invitation to where Mary Nelly Betsy [?] Wife who live there with Mr. [L. Fathermilona]. Mrs Jan Peasork took tea also and from which place we went to Holy Trinity Church. Rev. Brooks a Young Unmarried man – highly Candid and most extensively patronized. Had women, even Elizabeth that is singing. Magnificently crowded hall and so generally I understand so that it is difficult for [?] to find seats at all. The young man has [considerable] originality and a beautiful verbiage or fluency, but I cannot perceive the Strength & [fav] of his teaching if they are in it. I think Mr. B’s sermon of this morning contained [who just reputation] & entertainment far times exceeding Mr.B’s or an hour exceeds a minute. I may not be able to discover his powers which others talk of. Home to my Hotel at 9 ¼ to 9 ½ and to bed 10 ½ PM.
