To day I went up to the mill and while there learned that Mr. Bird had this morning shot Neily's negro man George in a very cowardly manner although he did not kill the negro. I made my arrangements to move up to the mill during the remainder of my stay up the Country. I returned to Father's in the evening. weather changeable & showery & very hot.
