A close, rainy day. Everything deluged in water. – – I wove 2 yds. on my dress today. – – Patsy commenced spinning mix for the piece of cloth in the loom after I finish my dress, for the boys’ clothes. – – How precarious the times. Doubt and uncertainty seem to possess the minds of all. Frederick came to have some talk with me on an important subject. – – Gave him satisfaction. No fish are being caught now. Eubank left in good time. – – Bill put up 5 hogs today.
