Thursday, 14th June, 1866

Intensely hot today. Zac walked up to the singing, did not return this morning. I made a pair of pants for Bill today. Finished them out. Patsy’s at work in the garden. Came up a blow this evening, but no rain. It is needed right much. – – Bill carried two scythe cradles to get Mr. Camm Trimyer to fix, drove George to the buggy.1 – – Nan finished off a high neck body to her calico dress today.

  1. We met John Camm Trimyer in a footnote on 19 October, 1865.  (back)
