Sunday, 3 September, 1865

The weather continues warm and dry. Liv started to the baptizing at Hill’s Mill, but his mule was too obstinate to allow him to get there. Frederick drove the carriage to church and Zac drove it home. Zac went to Colosse and brought Frank McLaughlin back with him to supper.1 Took leave of our esteemed friends when we left church. They returned with cousin Tom and will start home in the morning. We came home to dinner.

  1. We will confirm later that Frank is the son of Col. McLaughlin.  (back)
