Found it raining this morning, pretty briskly, like it was trying to make up for lost time yesterday and half the day before. I have said all this month that I should not expect good weather sooner than the 4th of next month and I think the indications are in favor of it. – – We got along very quietly with all of our affairs, in every department, no one to complain at. The birds, chickens, cats and dogs are well attended to, have not lost chickens since they hatched a week ago, although the weather has been so unfavorable for them. – – Well it has rained steadily the whole day. – – Bill handed me $2 last night to put away (Jury Service). He is exempt for present Court still in session.
