To day I remained at home writing up this note book. Mrs. Bird and Mr. Keen came over and remained for dinner. In the evening Father [Joshua James Hall] came up and informed me that he had sold my horse Rat for which I do not thank him and require him to furnish me another horse as good. I killed 3 wild geese with my shot gun at one shoot, pretty good shot that. Weather clear and cool with a hard frost at night.
