[Tuesday] September the 5 
After I had finished making butter
this morning, I went to spinning. Mrs. Brinley sent for some of us to go
to Miss Farquharson. I declined going
and none went but Betsy. In the afternoon, Mama and the girls went to pick
berries and I was left alone, except little Joanna who was asleep. -- Last
night the frost was so great as to kill all the cucumber, and it has been
very cold all day.
