Wednesday, 26 October, 1864

A lovely day. Finished sowing wheat today, 95 bushels. Mr. J. Cobb is here part of the day.1 I was anxious for Zac to have gone to Richmond for Bake today. He hitched up and on examining the buggy, found it would be dangerous to drive it on account of the tire of the wheels being loose. Had them put in the river. Salted up the beef. Bill and Zac cut it out by my instructions.

  1. Likely John Cobb, about 57, who lived nearby.  (back)
