Saturday, 20 May, 1865

Fine growing weather. Had about 1000 potato plants put out this evening. I was in the garden crowning them up when they all returned from the Dr.’s party, all except Pigeo retired for some sleep. Hardie found me in the garden about ten and assisted me in what I was doing. Gave the servants, except Jim, the day for themselves. Jim wishes to have next Saturday to go to Richmond. – – Frederick took Hardin’s horse home this evening. – – Furnished Mr. Eubank a barrel and the boys assisted him in salting his fish. Let him have salt for the purpose.
