Another pretty day. – – Bake and the Lieut. were to arrive in Petersburg yesterday evening and start for Savannah this morning. – – I am confined in bed again today. – – Patsy washed today. Zac helped to pull corn a little. It is useless to think of sending him to school now, when he doesn’t average one day in a week. Pigeo is preparing for school. Her health has so much improved I think she will be able to enter before the 3rd of January, and the roads will be in better condition. I know she has not a day to lose. – – Hardie and I take our medicine. It has a good effect on him, but scarcely any at all on me. – – Bill had a large stack of fodder hauled today, and wood in the evening.
