A most beautiful day. Had the garden ploughed by Bartlett and sowed peas this evening, the row and a piece next to the river Rose gave me. The next, Mrs. Claiborne Hill gave me, the next Hal brought me from her Grandma, and the next mine. – – James King came this morning. – – Bill walked to the C.H. at dark and returned in company with Mr. Hill. I sent Frank to Ju’s for some onions and cabbage seed. He wrote a note back by him rather startling in its character.
