Quite pleasant. Made some apple pies this morning and sent Mr. Cooke a couple of them, a plate of butter and some loaf bread, by Tom and at the same time sent for a bag of apples today. – – Bill rode to Ju’s after dinner. He gave him something to wash his mouth in. I sent Stuart two fine potatoes. Hauled a few oats today. Zac went over to help load the wagon. Jim is sick and Washington drove the wagon. Had the carriage put in the yard for Zac to oil and fix up tomorrow. – – Clarissa milked this evening. She has been sick a fortnight. Pigeo is very little wasted from her chill. – – Gave her my brown borage today. Bill wrote to Balto. for some Pennsylvania wheat today, 75 bushels. Liv and Mr. Cooke went fishing at the mill, returned to supper.
