Wednesday, May 2nd, 1860

To day Isaac Tanner's time expired for which I had employed him. The wagon returned, with 12 bushels of corn and the things I purchased at Wall's sales. I let Mrs. Hall have 1 Btl. of whiskey 40 Gals. @ 80¢ per gal. making $32‰. Albert went to the mills & got about 200 lbs. flour, 3 bushels of meal, & I also let Mrs. H. have 3 bushels of meal. The hands still at work in the cotton. weather clear & warm.
