Saturday, 27th April, 1867

Quite a pretty day. Clarissa planted corn and John, Tom, the man hired in Richmond, and Uncle David covered with three drags. – – Bill has been quite sick all day, gave him tartar. He rode to the C. H. late this evening. Bettie finished weeding potatoes. I walked to the quarters to see the little children quite in curiosity, two pairs of twins, one of the girls for her victuals and clothes. – – Dr. Phil came this morning and spent a few hours. I was busy making potato pudding and mince pies.
