Much warmer today. Bill thinks himself better since the medicine has acted, but not materially so. – – Washington left for parts unknown last night in company with McGeorge’s boys. What an unhappy state of affairs exist at this time. Zac rode Sheridan up to his Uncle Hill’s to see if the horses were all there. Sent some calves up yesterday to graze, but they came back to the wheat field today. – – The servants are replanting corn, but do very little of anything. Liv rode Sheridan away to see some of his co. to try to get some one to float in Washington’s place. – – Patsy’s mixing wool again today. Gave Bill another dose of calomel and Jalap tonight.
