Saturday 17, September, 1864

The weather is fine and seasonable. Had a few more peaches peeled this morning. – – Gave Nan and Rose tartar emetic. Nan had another chill today. Rose did not. Stuart has been very good today and is a heap of company for me. I am thinking so much of the absent ones, dear children, all are away but one. How scattered my thoughts are when I think of them, some in one place and some in another. – – Gave both the children Calomel and Jalap tonight. It acted well in both cases. Tucked Rose’s Va. Cloth dress this morning.
