Fine day. Zac’s making a finish of some little fixing in his trunk inside. Starched and ironed his shirts, &c today. Nan finished off the one she was making. Begins to have a right good idea of it. Mrs. Lipscomb came today for ½ bushel corn and a pound of bacon, and took dinner here. Says she wants to break up housekeeping another year and come and live with me. – – Zac killed three sora today. – – Pigeo’s in bed taking quinine, succeeded in missing her chill. Liv’s in his room taking his. – – Jim at the quarters and Addison in the house, all succeeded in missing chills, except Jim.
