1863 January 31 Campbell County, Va.

[from the diary of George W. Dabney, clerk of Campbell County]

Sat'  Jan' 31.
Windy & cold - no stripping tobo -
getting stakes for fences, hauling wood &c
visited patients several times - must
put in glass in cabin windows-
Dr. to Robert - prescribed & left directions
Jesse much better -Ro so-so - Marga
ret takes Lucy Ann's place in household
duties, as she of course is to take it - am
in favor of all having it now - especially
Margarets young brood - no time more favor
-able - a full sweep alternated in time
will produce little drawbacks on farm
progress, & with proper care no serious harm
