Wednesday 25th Today I came to the mill. It is nearly a mile from our house to the mill, so far the sawyers will have to be boarded in this house which is near by it. We have a girl engaged to come out Monday to cook for them till then I think I can manage it is so much expense for the mill to stop while they go to their meals.

We are going to move here altogether as soon as we can get a house large enough to hold us all.
