Monday 21st [July 1862]
Mr. Moore & Harkins came this morning & divided the salt. I have been very unwell all day indeed. I have not been well for a month. Willie’s bowels are bad off. He is so fretful I can’t do anything scarcely. I cut Hanes two aprons today. Sewed a little on one. Mail brought no news. Mr. Henry made his return today. P.O. business.
