Friday, Sept 11, 1885 Went down town on some errands. After dinner it being a most brilliant, charming day we drove out, my father, Mary, Sara and I. Went up the creek to Eddyville, by St. Remy, through Cali[?] Hook, and over to the river road getting home just at tea time. I had a conversation with Tom our hired man. He is to be married about Oct. 20th and has hired a house or part of a house. After his year is up in November wants to work by the month at $30 a month. This is more than I can afford but I did not tell him so. Here comes a new bother. I go out to visit Tom McEntee tomorrow.
