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.
