A good day. Ben carried Mary and William Brumfield to Long Island to day on their way home. I do hope they are at Richmond to night. Mr Will Motley was buried this evening. He was an odd Fellow.

Marvin carried Carrie and I to Altavista to a show. Josie and Kate Harvey kept the children.

Tonight Ben and Josie and Paul have gone to see the show. I am here with the children. Hope they will be pleased with it.
