Monday 3rd [February 1862]
I cut Jim & John a pair pants today. Atheline is to make them. I heeled Mr. Henry some socks. Willie has got well but very fretful. The others all well. Mail came along but nothing new. Old Jim Night is to attend the mill as E.P. Night is going to Geo[gia]. Willie coughed a good deal at night.
