January 24, 1849 (Wednesday)

Spent the evening at S—d—e.  Was somewhat surprised this evening, when, on looking at my purse for the purpose of paying my board, found that five dollars was missing.  How, when or where it disappeared, is a mystery to me.

At this time, Nathan was earning fewer than 10 dollars per week.
