A delightful morning. Hardie and Pigeo rode out this morning before breakfast, returned while we were eating. Ju invited all to dine their today. Hardie and Bake went in the buggy, and Pigeo and Lieut. Arledge on horseback. Bill, Zac and I remained at home. Spent a quiet day. The boys ploughed some. Bill’s complaining a little. I expected the children back to supper, but they did not return till about eleven. Spent a very pleasant day at Ju’s. Patsy commenced working in the garden this evening. – – The Lieut. went down for Hal in the buggy from Ju’s and Hardie carried her back. Returned to Ju’s and all came on down together.
