Friday 13th July, 1866

Quite warm today. Had my grained peas ploughed this morning before ploughing in peas. – – Patsy finished the watermelons this morning, commenced yesterday morning. – – Zac walked to the C. H. this morning, but went no farther thinking the Col. would not be at school. Returned to dinner. Staid in his room most of the evening till it was time to get the boat ready to take Pigeo and Nan over to Mr. Henley’s. They waited till 7 for Lu, but she did not come. They started at 7 for a pleasant boat ride, three happy little souls. Will attend the singing at Bruington tomorrow. – – Went in the garden after they left and planted part of a square in corn. It was badly broken up though by Washington.
