It was the warmest day that we have had this spring untill to day… Clara & I staid home to feed the calf & the chickens, she liked to talked me to death.
This morning I went up to sabbath school, took the chilldren. it was preaching day, but the chilldren got so tired that we did not stay for preaching. I see Margaret Bixler there, she sayes that Bill will not get out untill the [regiment] does. After preaching, they were all going down to Walters creek to see some dipping. Rey Lawrence, Liz & Louisa Mathew, Jonth Lawrence girl & Sam Moor’s two girls.
Lizzie has been down working for Clara for some time. Clara has been very poorly this spring. I believe they all think she has a misscarage. I never have said any thing to her about it except it is all so.
