To day I drove out to Mrs. Mass??? after the old lady to come in and do some sewing but she was sick, consequently I had my "trip" for nothing. I hired a negro woman by the name of Ophelia for one month for which I am to pay her 3$ in greenbacks, thus relieving the little woman from further labor in the kitchen. Fannie is now up & nearly well. Little Josephine is recovering. Col. Jim Wrigley came over on the cars, sick & is confined ??? Weather changeable and hot. Ther: 88°. Thus closes my jottings for the month of July.
