Another fine day. Bake and Nannie, with Tom to carry a bundle, went to Hill’s to spend a day or two with Mary. I am white washing in the dining room. Finished there and went up in the passage and chambers. – – Liv has been busy fixing the bottom in a tub. Succeeded very well I believe. – – He sold a man 9 shad at 1p a piece. – – Parky planted the orchard in peas. Beck is helping to prepare the ground for the ploughs to put in sugar cane, peas, beans, &c.
