The weather has been quite seasonable recently. – – Bill took a few pills of quinine this morning, but had a rise of fever and I repeated the calomel and Jalap at 2 o’clk. His fever kept up high till near night. Gave him a cup of hot water tea after using ice, which was very beneficial to him. Ju sent Horace down for four pounds butter. – – The ditchers got eight pounds flour. – – Pigeo’s improving. Made herself a pair of sheep-skin gloves today. Patsy’s at work in the garden. Dellah and Bettie are weeding walks and cutting down weeds in the yards. – – I rested tolerably well tonight.
