Tuesday 5th [July 1864]
We quilted the other cradle quilt today. I bind it this evening as I have a slight headache. Anon Jones spent the evening here. Gus has got a good deal better. I hope he will soon be well. He is cutting his jaw teeth, two are partly through. I knit some this evening. Atheline is not improving any.
