Thursday, 4th October, 1866

A lovely day. Left Nan and Bill to housekeep and the rest of us, Bake, Pigeo, George and myself, went up in the carriage to spend the day at Oak Dale. Spent a pleasant day. Washington drove, returned home and came up to drive the carriage back about 5 o’clk. Pigeo returned with me, and Bake and George remained. Will send up for them tomorrow evening. Nan finished her new muslin dress and bound the scallops quite nicely.
