Quite a pretty day. Nan and I, Lieut. and Hardie went in the carriage to Church. Thomas drove. Met Mag and Stuart on their way down. Ju came to dinner also. He and Mag left about sunset. – – Cousin Lem was uncommonly interesting today. spoke from the 3rd of Genesis and other parables on corresponding passages, subject the “Creation of Man.” Hardie and Lieut. were very much pleased with the sermon. – – Zac returned to supper. – – Mr. Carraway will be in attendance to perform the ceremony. When we returned from church, found Bake busy in the dining room with Martha making potato pies, but I stopped her. Told her they would be too late and as in all other things, she yielded immediately, and a very good dinner was soon ready. Pigeo and herself were housekeepers.
