Lovely weather. Bill sowed 8½ bushels wheat today, making 16 in all that’s brined. – – Patsy ironed and while she was about dinner, Nan ironed some things for herself and Bake. She and Addison beat out the peas in the office for winter use. – – George went to Tappahannock to take the steamer for Balto. Washington drove George to the buggy, returned at dark. – – I have been quite indisposed all the evening from eating cabbage for dinner. Bake fixed me a dose of Jamaica ginger. It relieved me very much. – – Gave Pigeo quinine. She missed her chill, got up and went down to supper. – – Cut out a gown for Nan.
