Eldon House

New Year's Day, 1849, Eldon House

January 1st, 1849 excerpt from the diary of Charlotte Owen Harris:

Mamma, Amelia and Eliza went to church.  Jack went to the election in the Township of London.  We had about fifty visitors.  Mr. Hay & Mr. Butler had too much wine.  This is the first time anyone has called here in that state.
