Quite cool this morning. Mr. Grubbs left after breakfast. – – I am feeling very unwell this morning. Sick enough to be in bed. Susannah came and assisted Jim in making a cowpen at the gate. Gave her breakfast and she returned home. – – Pigeo remained in bed all day. – – Patsy finished digging potatoes yesterday, a poor turn out of indifferent potatoes. She weeded today. “Good old critter, as ever was born.” I am really sick today.
