Found it raining this morning and it continued to do so all day. – – Rose left after dinner sometime. Dellah cooked dinner. – – I am doubling black and white yarn for double cloth for the boys’ clothes. – – Zac’s furlough is out today, but he defers starting on account of the rain. Finished sowing oat this morning, twenty-three bushels. – – Jim Spiller came and took dinner. Jack came for Rose this evening.1Jack seems to be a slave of the James Hill King family.
