Saturday, 17th November, 1866

Quite a pretty morning, but a light freeze last night. Bill went about grading the hill on either side of the bridge in order to commence hauling corn. Made the first two loads this evening. Mollie and I went with the wagon when Washington started, and saw it safely across the bridge. Finished trimming my cloak this evening. – – Pigeo, Nan and Mollie picked over the ground peas on the front porch. Had the buggy harness greased by Addison. I’m sick today. – – I parched coffee this evening and got in a perspiration, and input my bad feelings to that tonight.
