Quite a beautiful morning. Mrs. Moser came while I was in the dining room making a birthday cake for Liv and Zac, as they came in a few hours of each other. She brought the balance of the money for the corn. I gave her $10 and some butter and lard. They are honest people I believe. She took a tin bucket to have a bottom put on. Had some potatoes gotten in today. It would be well to have them all dug, I believe. Made preserves of grapes today. With molasses they are very nice. Made some to send Zac, but Bill came about 9 and said Zac would be at home on furlough in a day or two, so I shall not send. They are ordered to Richmond in ten days, Phil says. – – Answered Liv’s letter tonight, a page on foolscap.
