Fine weather. William Gregory left after breakfast. – – Had souse boiled today. – – Thomas left after receiving all of his wages, except one dollar less to Thomas, my fault. – – My health begins to improve a little. I can take but little exercise though. – – Nannie’s puny, and Hardie takes a pill every night and tries to diet himself, but does nothing else. Jim got him a bottle of spirits at Acquinton church. Bill rode Fannie to look for Tom. She slipped her bridle and made him walk home from the mill. Heard nothing from Tom. He is a cunning fellow.
