A lovely day. I am having some white washing done in the dining room. Dellah still weaving on the same piece coarse shirting. Martha spinning, Patsy breaking white wool to mix with the black she broke on Friday. – – Finished planting corn today and commenced breaking up cane ground. – – Frederick opened rows in the orchard for peas. Bill and Zac started to Richmond about 12 o’clk. Carried over some shad in a tumbrel. They both walked, went over to be paroled. I sent over 3 pecks dried peaches to sell. – – Loaned Hill George today to keep several days to do some work. Cornelius came for him.
