To day the boys are at work planting the lower field anew, the last frost having entirely destroyed the growing corn, thus losing the labor heretofore bestowed in planting as well as the seed corn planted. Hicks assisted me at the mill. we ground 5 bushels of wheat. In the evening a hole broke in the levee and carried away about one third of the same, in consequence of which I lost my entire head of water. Weather changeable & rather cool.
