I was awaked this morning by the storm raging without, sometime before 2 o’clk. It increased blowing, hailing and raining in torrents till day, and then the wind somewhat abated, but the rain continued till near sunset. Bettie milked this evening, the first time since yesterday morning. John Owens rode George to the C. H. and Acquinton to get a pair of shoes for his wife, gave him $2.
