No rain yet. I am still in bed and quite sick. – – Bake sent a note to Hal this morning by Zac. He sent Fannie home from Ju’s by Buck with a note to Bake by Zac. He will walk from there to school. – – Mag sent word by Martha that she and Pigeo would ride down this evening, but Ju and Stuart came with her and I thought it best to retain her, as Bake and Zac will leave for Richmond in the morning. Gave her $100 out of the desk before retiring. She fixed up a snack. Ju left with Stuart after dark. Will send Martha in the morning for Pigeo’s trunk. – – Bake finished off a most beautiful gown today.
