Quite a lovely day. Had the potato ground ploughed by Uncle David. When he finished, had a square reploughed for transplanting late cabbage. – – Bettie employed the day for herself today. Pigeo and I had intended going to Acquinton shopping, but Phil, the horse I intended driving, had a swollen shoulder, been unfit for work for several days. Two ploughs are opening corn rows and one drag at work. – – Patsy came to see me this evening. Walked with her to show her my garden and gave her some little things before leaving. I am always glad to see her.
