Another lovely day. Never saw more beautiful weather in Dec. Finished the corn today. Zac went to the field a short time. Bill and Hardie up the river. Killed another duck in addition to two in the house. They came in before sunset. – – Patsy commenced spinning some wool. Had some things starched. Martha finished ironing. I ironed the boys shirts. Can iron them more beautifully than ever Parky did. Then repaired several. – – Bill gave Patsy a scold this evening.
