Raining again today. I never saw such a wet winter in my life. Bill took a snack and left for Lieut. Haw’s to see about purchasing a horse, gave him $2000. – – Sent Martha for the mail, sent a turkey hen by her to exchange for a gobbler with Mr. Slaughter. – – Bake received a letter from Alice Hill, and Pigeo one from Phil Lewis. – – Two soldiers came to get accommodations tonight, one from Lancaster and the other from Gloucester. Bill had not returned tonight.
