A good day. Very warm for the time of year.
We agreed to take a negro girl to help us. She came this morning to see us.
Bessie Callands (col) come here this morning to work. I hope she may stay and be some help to us.
I washed a little this evening.
Carrie & the children come a while this evening.
Fred Stone brought Bessie home. I paid him a dollar for it.
I had thought that I would start to Richmond in the morning but it is raining so that I doubt it now.
It is lightning & thundering.
