Friday, March 9th, 1860


In the morning Sam SHARP started to town before breakfast. I made a single tree & irons etc. and started 2 plows. In the evening all hands including the little woman had to fight the fire from the woods to prevent the fence from being destroyed, consequently no other work was done. The weather rather cold with N.W. wind blowing rather fresh & frost at night.
