Fine weather, quite cool. I cooked breakfast. Patsy came out afterwards and ironed today. – – Hardie came unexpectedly to us this evening from Richmond, brought me some nice lemons. Pigeo reached Mary’s a day or two before he left, looking very well. He says will be at home as soon as I inform her what day to take the stage. – – The children, Bill, Zac, and Nan returned from the C. H. to breakfast and slept most of the day. No school for Zac, several days lost this week. – – Washington churned this morning.
