A beautiful day. Ju has not sent Mollie down yet. His promises are like pie crust now, didn’t used to be so.1 – – Bill was taken with a severe chill and had to give up and just prostrate himself on the floor. Dr. Phil Duval came to sell me a horse at $125. I purchased it upon his recommendation, perfectly sound and gentle, eleven years old, as I was so much in want of one. I couldn’t stand upon that, but concluded the bargain and paid him $12 and gave him my note for $113 (one hundred and thirteen dollars). He left on the horse before dinner. Will send him up this evening or tomorrow morning.
