Rather windy today. Still opening corn ground, will be ready to plant perhaps Tuesday or Wednesday. Bettie worked a little in the garden before dinner and cleaned the office floor in the evening. I am repairing various things. Bill rode to Enfield to see a Capt. of vessel about taking wheat. He will be down the river next Saturday. Mr. Cooke engaged the Capt.’s boat to take Pigeo and I, with Mrs. Harrison and the children, including Mollie, across the river to Walkerton store, but the wind blew so hard we were afraid to go.
