May 15, 1829

Delivered twin calves this morning. Moving the entire heard to the Fallow Pasture because three cattle died from drinking creek water. Using the pond instead. I expect the town council's going to look into this mess. Parson's lost a few of his livestock as well. Bessie wantin me to out bay but I'm a bit tired from the harvest.

Behind the scenes[]

  • The diary mentions being exhausted from the harvest, but by the date of the entry harvest would have been months away.
  • The only known entries in the journal go from 1825 to 1829, then back to 1825.
