To day I drove out to Rick's mill after some meal, but did not succeed in getting any. Fanny & Jimmy are still sick, but slowly improving. My negro woman Louisa became refractory and I drove her off the premises, she having been freed by the President's proclamation, began to feel her oats too strong, and hence the rupture between us. The little woman is now doing her own house work. Weather changeable and hot. Ther: 94°.
