May 4th. 1860. May the 1st. was the first time that I went down to breakfast with my Husband since the birth of our baby. That morning I practised on the Piano, and took a ride in the afternoon.May 4th. All well (T G) Mrs. Mitchell, Miss Conrad, Miss Post, and Miss Rodriguez called to see me, they were all delighted with little Edward. We took a short drive. My Mother came over in the evening to take care of the baby so that I might go and hear the Swiss bell Ringers but I did not care to attend.May 5th. [1860] Rather a pleasant day. I wrote to Mrs. T. Dwyer as she expects to start for Europe soon. I have just received a letter from my dear Aunt Maria they were all enjoying good health. Charlotte bought the baby a bottle and India rubber nipple. Our place now looks beautifully green and shady. The gardin is very fine. I went over to the casita for the first time since it has been repaired, it looks really very nice and pretty.May 6th. [1860] Sunday I went to Church this morning with the Captain for the first time since the birth of the baby, my Mother took care of him & nursed him on the bottle. Major Dashiell, Dr. D. his brother, and Miss Aurelia dined with us. Mrs. Williams had her children Baptised today by Mr. Bunting, we went round to her house, their were several persons there. We had cake and wine and spent an hour rather pleasantly; from there we went to see Mrs. Abbodie who arrived yesterday. Concion brought Mrs. Tabbin and Miss Navarro over to see me this afternoon. The Captain and myself were tired and came up stairs immediately after Tea.
