Quite a pretty day. Bill has had beautiful weather while in Richmond. I entered 30 yds. coarse cloth for Dellah to weave today. She made a commencement, striping a dress for Patsy. – – Hardie hooped some tubs and buckets for me. Makes himself useful whenever he can. He is like a fish out of water now, but I hope the time is not far distant when he will swim again. A state of suspense is not very pleasant. – – Martha commenced taking up a mound of turnips today. Patsy washed.
