October 2, 1849 (Tuesday)

Exceedingly disagreeable day, more like the equinoctial than anything we have had yet. Had intended going to the Opera this evening, but it was so rainy and stormy that I concluded it would be more desirable to stay in the house, as we had a comfortable fire to sit by.

For more on what Nathan means by equinoctial, see the entry for September 20.
