Tuesday, June 7th, 1864

To day the boys are at work setting out potato slips. W.E. Wingfield & Thos. Stubblefield left for Crockett early after breakfast. I sent to Captain Waul the post quarter master at Crockett 120 lbs. of bacon by Mr. Wingfield, it being my tax in kind on bacon to be used for the benefit of the army of the Confederate States. Billy Stewart left for Crockett late in the evening. I let him have 2½ bushels of meal. Hicks ground 13½ bushels of corn. Weather cloudy and warm with a hard rain for at least one half of the day, raising the Elkhart creek very high. Ther: 80°.
