After Sarah and Lucy Bailey had recited their lessons, Mrs. Cutler took Sarah in the carriage to spend the day at her grand-mothers -- I read the Daily Gazette to Mr. Burgess as usual. Put the house in order, watered my plants, wrote a little, worked four hours in the garden. Gave Alice Scott a variety of flower roots and shrubs. Mrs. Ann Briggs Reppert called. Rained in the evening. William has spent yesterday and today with the County Commissioners on Railroad affairs -- one of them J. J. Hollister, was disposed to do right but the other two were stubborn and unreasonable, at last one of them gave in -- but the third a Mr. Thomas was of the same opinion still, however the majority carried the question.
Linly Wilcox came to-night to take the cattle out to the Old Farm. John Kunz brought me a note from Lucy. The curtains have come safely. I was vaccinnated.
