August 1860 Hampton Hill

S. 4. This morning I rode in the carriage with Mary & Lyd, to Lucas' place. After paying our visit there we returned into Aiken & paid a visit to James Gaillard. In returning we met in street & spoke to James Gaillard T W Porcher, Dr Coffin, Mood, Walker & Mr Heyward. I came back much fatigued by the ride & the visits.
I weighed at Wessells store 119 lbs

S. 5. Sunday! We all went in to Church this morning, it being communion. Sunday - Lyd has remained to spend the night with Fanny Legare

M. 6 Went in this morning in my Buggy for Lyd, & paid a short visit to old Mrs Legare. Henry school re-opened today after a month of holy day.
Caroline & Emma Dawson rode out in afternoon

T. 7 Remained at home all day. My troublesome visitors the carbuncles are healing slowly - I am able to walk about now without the aid of my stick, & I hope these are the last. Received today a letter from Dr Horlback of Charleston about Grape cuttings.
