Monday 14th [March 1864]
I made Jim a shirt today. I went with Mr. Henry up to the hotel garden after dinner. He went to the Murray place. I came on home. Rose took Zona, Willie & Gus to the Sulphur Spring this evening & came back by Betsy McKinnish’s. I have a cold & feel badly. Lonzo & I cleaned out the cellar today & fixed some hen’s nest in there.
