We have prospect of rain again, has become very cloudy.
Called on Miss K. R—y this evening
(Made a mistake, wrote the affairs of Monday under the head of Tuesday)
Nathan is using a pre-printed diary for 1849 called Stewart’s Register (see picture at right). He wrote his entry for March 5 in the spot designated for March 6 (he’ll reverse the process tomorrow). If you’re wondering why he doesn’t write more, it’s a fairly small diary and there are three days printed on each page. As one of my favorite (offline) commenters put it, “Nathan is no Proust.” True, but he doesn’t have the room to be prolix either.
