15th June – A fine clear day, and the first we have had for a long time, Wind N. Went to Town, return’d to Dinner & brought out Miss Meroney ~ Busy curing Clover, which I find very little injur’d by the late Rains, having been left in the Swarth – Rode over to the Meadows having 6 Men mowing Clover ~
