Clear and cold. This was my day for going to town but I was unable to do so as my Gig needed some repairs. Occupied part of my time at the House superintending as usual but spent more in reading and writing. One hundred lines of Homer’s eighth book as usual which I now find an easy mark. Afternoon I commonly pass at the House but a portion was taken up with Mr. Price Greenleaf in going round inspecting the budded trees he did for my father some time since. Evening at home. The Children play Loto, after which I continued with fresh zeal my essay upon the Currency.
