Tuesday 23nd [September 1864]
Very little news this morning. Till Morris was here a short time this morning. Rained nearly all day. Mr. Henry in the house all the morning & at the mill in the evening. Matt & I made a shirt for Mr. Ball today. He stays here today waiting for his boots. He lets Mr. Henry have a pistol for the boots. He is a nice little soldier. Tena has been making some starch this week. She has not put it to sun yet as it has rained so much.
