December 25, 1849 (Tuesday)

Christmas—a Holliday, but a most bitter cold one, and windy: unpleasant to go out.  Had intended spending Christmas in Norristown, but gave up the idea.  Went out a little in the morning to purchase some presents.  Passed the afternoon at Barnum’s Museum in a great crowd.  Called on Miss F—y C—t in the evening but she was not in.  Passed the rest of the evening at home.
