A white frost this morning and regularly cold all day. – – Zac went to school this morning. After taking a snack Bill rode away on business. Jim, Randolph, Washington, John Banks and Addison are running cultivators. Patsy replanting corn. – – I sent Mag some very nice loaf bread by Buck this morning. He staid 4 hours and brought me a very nice coconut pie. I’ve spent the day quite lonely, but always spend it pleasantly when I am alone. Beck paid me a visit, was quite entertaining. Has gotten tired of her present home and is not on speaking terms with Dellah and Corbin. Bill and Zac returned to supper. Bill attend Court and Zac school. The Col. was there, but looks bad he says. Sent by him to enquire if I could let him have some more bacon.
