We are having most beautiful weather now. Never saw prettier for gathering corn. – – Bill and Zac went to Court. The mill was put up and not a bid made for it. Ju sent me word Mr. Downer would be down and look at it in a few days and come and see me in relation to it.1 – – Had a mound of potatoes taken up and carried to the store room and put up in chaff for safe keeping. They are keeping beautifully, but I can’t bear the idea of having them stolen. They have certainly gotten their share.

  1. Perhaps William T. Downer, M.D., about 45. He lived in upper King William.  (back)
