Monday, 12th March, 1866

The weather moderated somewhat during the night – but still windy. Tom started to Richmond this morning. Sent a letter to Mary by him and gave him $2. – – I told Martha I wanted her to sleep in the chamber a while on acct. of making “fire” while I am suffering with my arm, and she certainly put on a great deal of assurance for it. – – Nan got through her lessons early today. – – Hardee’s feeling better this morning. Took about 15 grains quinine this evening and retired under the influence of it. – – Dellah finished her cloth today, 30 yds., for which I am to pay her for weaving at the usual rates.
