Sunday, 30 October, 1864

Quite a pretty day. We got off earlier to Church than we’ve been in the habit of doing. Cousin Lem requested last Sunday that we should all meet at ten o’clk. Commenced giving out the servants’ allowance on Saturday evenings. We all took dinner at Ju’s and returned to supper. Brought down my gallon of brandy I bought of Hill at 82 ½ $ pr gallon. Brought home my cloth and two bales cotton, got from the government, 82 yds. cloth, &c, $39 worth due now.
