Cool and pleasant, and as dry as possible. Rain is so much wanting. All except Nannie left home. Bill stopped at the C.H. and the rest of us attended Zion, came by Ju’s. I wanted to have some talk with him, but we chatted very little. Spent the afternoon at Mrs. Lewis’.1 She and the girls were very much pleased to see us. – – I engaged 3 bushels potatoes _?_for Mary.2 Price not named. – – All returned home to supper.

  1. Mrs. Lewis was the wife of Dr John L. Lewis of “Auburn.” She was Barbara Johanna Winston of Hanover Co.  (back)
  2. Are these potatoes for Mary Elizabeth Hanes, Caroline’s married daughter?  (back)
