18 – Very beautiful day, indeed the most so of any we have had this summer, with an appearance of its continuance ~ Took all hands to the Meadows, made a Stack of fine clover, from thence to Town, came home to dinner & again over to the Meadows, had ten hands at work & did well – Mrs. T walked to Mr. Steretts in the forenoon & to Mr. Peters in the Evg.
