Another pretty day. Hardie brought the little wagon loaded with husks before breakfast. Nan cooked breakfast. John churned very nicely. Had fruit stewed in the chamber. – – Nan rode Fannie to Ju’s and returned to dinner. Ju tied a thread on a wart on her cheekbone to cut it off. – – Pigeo suffering very much with a hoarse cold. – – Tom hauled wood today, made three loads. Had large piece roasting beef parboiled in the kitchen and roasted on the stove. My first attempt to roast as large a piece, did it very nicely and quickly done. Made the first smoke in the house.
