Very cool and clear today. I took Charles and Ellen and undertook to make a pig pen this morning, as the 3 pigs are so troublesome. Bill helped to put them in as soon as it was done. – – Bev Littlepage spent the morning. Will take Pigeo to Richmond on Wednesday. Left before dinner and returned again to supper and left before bedtime. Left me a basket of cherries to pick. Dr. Ju paid a visit to Bettie Owens this evening. Joined me in a cup of coffee and then walked all about the premises, including the garden, and continued my walk with him where he left as far as to where the hands were thinning corn. Gave them some instruction about it and returned to the house. – – Bill attended singing at Acquinton Church.
