Sunday, 23rd September, 1866

Quite a pleasant morning, though cloudy. Bake and I went in the carriage to Church. Washington drove, made it late getting there. George and Fannie drove freely, the first time I’ve used the carriage since Zac oiled it. We returned to dinner. Pigeo kept house. Nan’s having chills. Old Mrs. Lipscomb came to bring me ½ doz. birds. Gave her some bacon, potatoes, flour, &c. Bake’s old acquaintances were glad to meet with her at Church. The servants have quite a big day today. Jim gives it in honor of Albert, who is making his first visit since the surrender of Richmond. I am right much indisposed. This evening lay down and remained in bed all the evening. Pigeo sent supper upstairs to George and Bake.
