Quite a pretty day, after a freeze last night. Had to have my potato bed covered with straw. – – We agreed to lend ten barrels corn to the Government. The gentlemen left after breakfast. Mr. White came for a part of the corn we sold Mr. Davis, delivered him 40 bushels.1 – – Mrs. Hill sent for five bushels oats @ $40 pr. bushel. – – Ju spent the day. He and I had a settlement, i.e., I looked in his acct. – – I settled Beck’s hire for six or seven months last year, also gave him $35 in Va. money for the $5 I borrowed in greenbacks last year. – – Cut out two shirts for Liv, Va. Cloth. – – Dellah commenced about making them. – – Pigeo has been quite sick all day. Bake and Nan walked to see Mrs. Lipscomb this evening.
