A very good day. Bill attended Mr. Pointer’s sale in King and Queen.1 Only bought an ox chain @ 7/c. Returned after we had supped. – – Martha ironed. Nannie, my little house-keeper, made a very nice partridge pie for dinner. I am feeling right badly today. She made me some of the nicest and best waffles I ever tasted. – – The boys spend most of their time with their guns. Go out a good deal at night and kill a great many “varments,” ducks, birds, &c.

  1. No likely Mr. Pointer has come to hand.  (back)
