Commenced raining in the night last night powerfully and has rained incessantly all day, till late this evening. Bake is assisting me about the children’s clothes, making a black body for Nan and a scarlet one for her dress. Pigeo is making an alpaca body for herself and I am about the skirt of a muslin dress I had dyed for her. Dellah is making drawers for Nan. Finished two pair and hemmed the skirt of a linsy dress for Nan. – – Hardie and I looked through his big trunk today for a heart pin to match the pearl bracelets he brought Bake, but couldn’t find it. – – Poor fellow! He is still suffering with his arm, but I hope everything is for the best. – – Bill rode a mule up for the mail. I received a letter from Mary respecting Albert. – – Hung up the rest of our pork.
