Hardie went partridge hunting. Bill and he returned together with a nice lot of them. Took their guns again and went up the river and killed ducks and muskrats, I think. – – Zac went to the Acquinton Church for the two forks Mr. Houchings had to mend. Took Addison when he returned and had some manure put on my asparagus bed. – – I am right much indisposed today, but I repaired Hardie’s coat and gloves. Patsy washed.
