A lovely day after the morning, which was inclement. Bill and I transplanted two rows late cabbage plants between the Tom Thumb peas. Had the first peas today and a nice dish of spring turnip salad. It comes rather earlier than the kale, and is very nice. – – Put my Va. cloth skirt on the body I had turned some time ago. – – Zac has not returned from the fish fry at Walkerton yet. Returned to supper, having had a very pleasant time. Dined at Mr. Henley’s today. Jennie Henley will return with Lu Monday evening to stay with her till after the singing at Acquinton. They send a particular request for Nan to return with them to stay that length of time. – – Weighed meat for John Banks and Jim for three weeks, and Washington and Randall one week. John Banks doesn’t work today.
