Thursday, 6th September, 1866

Fine growing weather. Zac started after breakfast to Robin’s Mill in the wagon with two mules for the flour and carried 6 bushels in and had ground. Returned after dark, was detained at the hill on account of having in too much load. Sent Harris to the house for help.1 Bill sent the oxcart down by Washington to assist in bringing the load up. Bill and Liv went out and attended to putting it in the smoke house. Zac came in to supper after attending to the ham and gave us an account of his trip, quite amusing.

  1. Without a first name we will not know which member of the Harris family the is. See the Harris footnote for 11 December, 1865, or wait for the footnote tomorrow for more speculation.  (back)
