9 10 oclock
Jim bought some butter from Sallie Blair. He would insist on going home so Ben carried him to Long Island. When Ben got to the creek at Cedar Forest it was up so that he would not cross with the buggy. He put his horse up at Mr Johnsons and come over on a boat and walked home. He brough some mail for several people. The carrier did not make his round on account of high water. I am very glad that things are not worse than they are.
Some rain to day.
Ben went to Cedar Forest for his horse that he left yesterday. The river did not get very high. Not like it was expected to. Ben come to Strait Stone and helped to sein some. Brought home 4 nice cat fish.
Mr. Owen went to see his brother to day.
