[Monday) August the 28 [1815]
I have been picking currants from nine this morning till four this afternoon. We have got a large washing-tub full for wine. -- Since, I have been raking hay till nearly night. -- Mr. Beamish and George left here very early this morning. I did not see them. -- While I was picking currants, my thoughts were employed with where I should be and what I should be doing this day twelve months.
