[Thursday] September the 14 
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.
