A very good day. We arose quite early. I had Bill waked to make an early start to Richmond. Had 9 lbs. butter put into a bucket for market. Borrowed one of Parky’s, the Yankees having deprived me of all mine. Gave him $25 to make some few purchases. – – We gave the servants two or three days a piece this week to cut wheat for themselves or to do whatever they liked. Hardie and Lieut. Arledge rode to Ju’s this evening. The former wished to see Ju respecting a little boil or something of the kind on his face. Ju was not at home. – – I cut out a calico dress for Pigeo today, one that Hardie brought from Europe.
