Had some rain today. Dr. Braxton came for 30 bushels corn at $6.50 pr. barrel.1 All are indisposed except Nan, who was housekeeper and had dinner. – – Hardie rode to Mrs. Hill’s this evening and back to supper. I had second attack of chills today.

  1. We will learn later the corn was sold to Dr. Tomlin (Jack) Braxton of Chericoke. There is also a Dr. William P. Braxton, about 50, who lives near Chericoke at Oak Spring.  (back)
