[Thursday] September the 14 [1815]
This morning I was very busy washing. -- In the afternoon, Mr. Beamish came up and brought his horse. -- He spent his afternoon mending his gun and making me wait on him with the tools. -- Poor Phebe has met with a sad misfortune. A crow has taken away one of her chickens and it was one of her favourites. -- Mr. Beamish rode after it with his gun, but could not git it. -- The weather has been disagreeable all day.
