Rather cool for the season. I am quite indisposed today. Didn’t go down to breakfast. – – Kit and Cornelia came to dine, Bunny Littlepage also.1 Spent a pleasant day. Lieut. Arledge, Hardie, Liv and Eubank went fishing before dinner. – – Liv and Eubank took their rations for the night and went out after dinner. – – All took a walk when Cornelia left, and I went to have the fish salted, 37. – – Nannie gathered a waiter of fine strawberries. – – Bill sat up nearly all day today, is improving. Bunny accompanied Bake on his flute, had fine music. Transplanted more potato plants this morning. Have put out about 3000.

  1. I have no idea which Littlepage this might be. Help!  (back)
