June 29, 1849 (Friday)

Cloudy pretty much all day.

Called on Miss F—y C—t, but she had gone with her mother to the country.  Mr. Tilden started this afternoon for New York.

Presumably, Fanny left the city with her mother for the same reason Mr. Tilden sent his family away, that is, to avoid cholera. Interesting that Tilden left for California from New York instead of Philadelphia. It couldn’t have been because of cholera because the disease was in New York as well.
