Thursday, 17 August, 1865

An inclement morning. Horace came to bring a ticket for the family to attend Miss Hattie Hill’s marriage.1 All declined going except Hardie and Zac, from indisposition. Zac went to the Piping Tree this morning to see Fendall on business. Bake completed a tucked skirt and cut out a Swiss body for Nan this evening.

  1. Miss Harriet (Hattie) Claiborne Hill, about 27, is the daughter of Robert Augustine Hill and older sister to Gus Hill who frequently visits Woodbury. She married James Ambrose (Jake) White, 26 of Green Level. We have met his family as well.  (back)
