Prescott is 20 yrs. old today – and a fine boy he is. Frank went to Northampton to tend to a note. Bought a fine shirt for P.

Brought Grandma’s clock home.

Prescott has been drawing logs into mill yard. Emma and I made ‘favorite dishes’ for Prescott’s dinner and supper. Had orange sauce, cream cake, pork cake and raised biscuit for supper.
