Picnic at the Allée
the Jacksons were also in attendance. Miss Waterman and the General both indulged me in several games of 'Shut the Box', and I was in rare form, winning both games!
I must endeavour to remember this lesson for our next outing at Bledsoe's Lick and carry only water with us. Although there will no want of the stuff, as there is a famously cool natural spring near the old fort's location.
The coming month of May brings a great deal of travel and I shall be quite busy. The first weekend there is to be held a fair in Maury County where I shall be demonstrating in the home of Mr. Samuel Polk for the benefit of the publick.
Then I shall be on business to Virginia the next week, followed by our planned Naturalist Walk near Bledsoe's Lick.
