Practiced penmanship quite a good deal today. Helped Mr. Holbrook fix some line fence this morning. Went to the sawmill afternoon dinner and ordered some flooring and battons for the wood house. Kate and I fixed up a frame for the show cards, which I have written. We made a bottle of mucilage with water and Green Arabie. Have had the blues today, together with a sour stomach.
