A most beautiful day. Pigeo and Bill have beautiful weather in Richmond. I was up and sent Addison for Washington, time enough to be ready to start to Richmond by day. Went down and had the things put in the tumbrel. Wrote to Bill before retiring last night. – – Jim made 6 loads corn today and Addison threw it in the corn house. – – Patsy pulled up ground pea vines and he laid them to dry for Martha and Addison to pick off today. She finished drying them and they nearly finished picking them off. A very fine turn out. – – Nan has evening fevers, don’t know whether she has chills or not. Jim only made two loads corn and went to pulling.
