Tuesday, 9 May, 1865

Fine growing weather. A severe peal of thunder surprised us all very much, a fine rain soon after. Liv and Mr. Eubank caught 112 herring last night. I commenced warping a piece of cloth for a dress for myself and the boys, mix clothes. – – Sent for Ju to see Bill. Commenced giving him Nitre I had and he furnished some other medicine. – – Dellah gave me so much insolence today I had to threaten to send her off. – – Ju engaged to sell 4 barrels corn for me for 9 dollars in green backs or six in silver. Patsy washed today. No one ever came for the corn Ju engaged.
