Monday Aug. 29 1864

The last of our Logan Grapes gathered to-day.  They are the earliest grape we have, and are very good.  Mrs. Cutler & Sarah went to town -- got me a plain black calico dress which cost about four dollars, it used to cost about $1.50.     Col. R. R. Dawes was here to dinner.  He expects to go into the sheep business with his uncle William, but starts tomorrow to Washington to settle up his military accounts with Government ----    Little Jennie Stone, Mrs. Giles’ niece came down & spent the night with Sarah.
