Monday Feb. 1st & Tuesday 2nd 
I was very unwell all day yesterday with my head & only knit some. I sent some wool to Ham Cannon’s yesterday for him to exchange for cloth or thread at the factory. He starts today. I made one collar today & began another. I bound one with pink gingham, put tape trimming on one & bound one with yellow gingham. I went to H. Cannon’s this evening to see Mrs. Jamison who is very low with typhoid fever. 8 o’clock high, North wind, cloudy & turning cold fast.
