Monday, July 18, 1864

Mr. Marshall, Hanna Carlin, & George Cutter, went away this morning on the train.  We are now busy haying.  Have about a dozen hands at work.  They use a mowing machine & horserake, but several men are cutting down the grass with scythes.  Nancy is washing & I got dinner.  The day has been very hot, the thermometer at 112 & at 92 in the shade.  Kate & Sarah came home on the evening train.
