The most blustering weather, although I am trying to have some work done in the garden. Planted early mercer potatoes by Patsy, Beck, Martha and Bettie. I ventured to put the hands to sowing oats, though it’s so windy. Bill has been away all day. – – Returned to supper and left immediately after. Transplanted some potatoes, onions today.
