Still dry, no prospect for rain. Goldsmith left after breakfast. I was too sick to go down to supper or breakfast. Hardie presided last night and Nan this morning. Bake is too busy to look right or left. – – She went down and had some ginger tea made for me and attended to the butter. – – Mr. Norment came this evening to see Bill about one of his hogs. – – Nan rode to Ju’s and took Mary back with her. Sent him some nutmeg by her.
