A good day. The men worked on the tobacco until twelve. This evening Ben carried the children and I to White Falls. I fished some. Caught four little fish. The river was very mudy. It had bin all out of the banks. Mr Johnson & Roach[?] was at work to get the things out that had washed in the mill so that they could not grind. Sarah & Billie Emerson come to night. I am glad to see Sarah. We had turnip salit for dinner to day.
