We have had terrible weather during the week, too bad for anything. Jim hauled wood today. Clarissa twisted some knitting yarn, and came in to bring it. I sewed the buttons on Hardie’s coat. Bill rode on Fannie and gathered some nice persimmons, then went up for the mail. He, Hardie and Mr. Cooke returned by Larkin’s and took supper. – – Harriett Banks sent one pair of the socks she had to knit. I gave her cotton for two pair. – – A nice bird pie for dinner today.
