The weather quite warm. – – My little memorandum book has gotten out of my journal somehow or other, and it certainly bothers me a good deal. – – The girls go fishing every day and when they are not fishing they amuse themselves playing different games. I am sorry to say that I have but little time to work. I am all the time thinking what I shall have for them to eat. – – Zac rode Shakespeare to his Uncle Hardin’s to borrow a horse. He promised Bake to ride whenever she wished. Spent the night there. Hardie and the Lieut. spent the evening at Ju’s, returned to supper. – – Liv and Eubank caught 225 herrings last night.
