A clear nice day. We all staid at home most of the day. Just at night Ben went to Charless to get his team to go to Long Island after guano.

Mr Owen come to day wants to move to morrow. He will move in the house that Mr Bailiss moved from.

Kate Harvey come to see us to day. Josie got dinner. She fixed every thing very nice. I think all of us enjoyed dinner.

I have not seen any of Carries folks to day. Paul sent me his gloves to mend. I guess I will mend them tomorrow if nothing happens.
