Quite a white frost this morning. Nipped the potatoes right much. – – Had some little work done in the garden by Patsy and Beck, Parky spun. – – Planted early field peas. Dellah wove six yards cloth and had some time for herself afterwards. Salted away some 40 or 50 shad. Have nearly filled two barrels. – – Bill attended court. Concluded to go to Richmond on Wednesday to get salt and take over some shad. – – Gave Jim the day to break up and plant his cornfield.
