Fine morning. Bill engaged Pug Hill to plough today.1Ploughing would be very difficult for a 9 year-old. Pug is not likely the Alexander mentioned last week. He took off at dawn and remained the rest of the day. Zac ploughed with him. Bill rode away before dinner and remained till late. Took a snack at Larkin’s. – – Ju sent Isaiah down for more plants. I sent them enough to make up about 800.
