Morning unpleasant and about the middle of the day commenced raining and continued until sometime in the night. I arrived at home after dark, very wet, and felt quite chilly and very disagreeable. This made me very anxious for to have a place of my own, where I can have these little comforts without offending any. But while I am preparing to obviate these inconveniences, am I not creating some vastly greater. I must hope not, and for the day to arrive which closes my single life.
