The morning is so cool and pleasant since the rain and hail. I proposed to Zac to drive me in the buggy to Hill’s to spend the day. Met Ju on the way as we went up. The old Col. came over in the evening and promised to accompany Mag down on a fishing excursion on Friday.1The transcription shows Meg; it is Mag. – – We returned after supper from Hill’s and Bake had a nice dish of perch Bill had caught for supper. I trust the Yankees have paid their last visit to the W. House, though it is reported this evening that a gunboat came up in sight today.
