Quite a pretty day. Bill rode Jim to the C. H. and brought letters and papers, the first that we had received for weeks. Bake, Pigeo and Nan received letters from Zac. He is now in Brunswick County. – – Had bacon, lard, molasses, &c brought in the house, ten pieces bacon stolen while out. I think it is a shame. – – Martha has been cleaning up below two days, and I think it will take two days more before I can go down and make use of the rooms again. – – Liv expects to start tomorrow. Sent to Hill’s and borrowed his little wagon to send him over in, sent them a shad. – – Sowed another row of early York Cabbage in my hot bed. – – Fixed up some things for Liv. – – Wrote a PS to Bake’s letter to Hardie and Mary. I also wrote to Hollins Institute respecting the children for Liv to take to Richmond. Wish to enter both till they are educated. – – Patsy came in the chamber to spin with Martha on her wheel.
