Item Transcription:

Wednesday Dec 28th—- Today nothing has occurred worthy of mention. Fanny Levy dined with us and went home early in the afternoon much to our regret for our only pleasure now is in seeing our friends. Dr Ballinger spent the evening with us and we played cards until 10 o’clock– quite the dissipation for the times.
