To day the boys are engaged in killing a beef. I rode up to Mrs. Birds and assisted Emily to beam and draw in a piece of jeans. Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] came home with me from Mrs. Birds. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] still has fever. Hicks ground 2 bushels of corn. Weather variable and warm. Ther: 88°.
