A cloudy day and East Wind. Mama and I went shopping and I bought a present for Laura Belden. Mr Bradley called in the morning and brought Grace an air cushion. We are very impatient. In the af Bessy Parker came to see us looking very bewitching and full of enthusiasm. Her sister has broken her engagement! Another victim! Mr & Mrs Bradley came in the afternoon and the former went with me to the Portuguese Consul's where I was to buy passports. He was not at his office and we wandered about all the wharves in search of him, taking a long and very pleasant walk. Still cloudy and East wind.
