Beautiful weather. Clarissa went up for Nan after breakfast. Pigeo remained in order to return Bell Boykin’s visit and spent several days with her. – – Washington laid up today. Turned the tumbrel over with the baggage yesterday, and the wheel ran over him. – – The mules got frightened at a hog. – – Bill sowed seven bushels wheat today, making thirty-seven bushels in all. – – I commenced to answer Hardie’s letter, will finish it if nothing prevents, and write to Zac also and send for Bill’s Monday when he goes to Court. – – Gave out meat for three weeks to Jim, Sandy and Washington.
