Monday, 4 September, 1865

Bill finished delivering wheat today, 82 bushels, I believe, and 180 bushels white wheat. – – And left for Baltimore with the thought to return via Richmond. Mr. Gwathmey dined here.1 Had a terrible storm with rain a short time after they started. The vessel got aground and had to stay till the tide rose. Bake, Nan and I slept in the chamber. All retired without supper. Patsy came, but it was raining too fast. Sent a letter by Frank to leave at Acquinton church for the Misses Lipscomb to take to their Institute securing a place for Pigeo. – – Liv started to Richmond about 12.

  1. This may be William Gwathmey, M.D. of Burlington in the upper portion of King William.  (back)
