Tuesday 11th. Thermometer at 36 in the Morning—52 at Noon And 52 at Night. The Wind still at No. Wt. & fresh and Cold in the forenoon. In the afternoon it lulled & was more moderate.
Rid to Muddy hole, Dogue run, Frenchs & the Ferry.
At the first Began to plow—Women making fence on ditch round the Barn, and in lane. The frost below the surface (2 or 3 Inches) stopped in places the plow but I ordered them to proceed.
Directed the Plows at Dogue run to begin to morrow.
At Frenchs two plows were at work and the Women began to fence between fields No. 1 & 4.
At the Ferry I directed the Plows to work to morrow. Women still filling gullies and the Men preparing to fence on the long ditch.
Mr. Lund Washington and his wife dined here.
