The weather’s much warmer. Mrs. Anderson sent a message to Mrs. Garrett saying she would not dine there today. Remained home and will spend the night at Larkin’s. Will go to Mrs. Tebbs tomorrow. – – Bill delivered 41 bushels corn to Mr. Davis’ wagon. – – Nan and I are about two white cambric dresses for Mary. They are on a small scale. – – Vessels are beginning to ply the river again. Liv went to Colosse and will go from there to Will’s this evening to spend a day or two.1While there are too many possible Will’s in King William, there is circumstantial evidence later in the Journal that Caroline sometimes refers to her brother as Will.
