Sunday, 7 August, 1864

The weather very warm. Nan and I attended Zion. Bill dined at Ju’s. Pigeo remained with the sick crew. She is not well herself. We returned to dinner. Zac’s right low spirited, so I sent for Ju to see him this evening, just to gratify him. – – He prescribed for Zac and gave me some nitre and ammonia for Tom, who is sickest of the two, I think. – – After eating some watermelon and muskmelon, Ju left. – – I have not been well today. Was taken sick at breakfast table this morning. – – Sarah came for a pound butter this morning. I let her have it. It’s hard to avoid doing such things on Sunday, though I do not approve it.
