Wednesday, 31st October, 1866

Cloudy like for rain, had a slight sprinkle this evening. Still rectifying the house and arranging summer and winter clothes. Sent Addison to Ju’s for vinegar and some green tomatoes for pickling. He brought some nice tomato’s and over half gallon vinegar. Bill’s attempting to make a crossing place over the mill creek for hauling corn. – – Patsy batted cotton for comforts after washing two white counterpanes. Pigeo, Nan and I laid them on for a comfort for Bill’s bed. – – Commenced finding Tom today, for what little work he may be able to do. He is very complaining, but it’s impossible that he can live on nothing.
