Saturday, November 8th, 1862

To day I am busily engaged in the conscript office reconscripting those heretofore discharged by reason of disability. Sam H. Sharp* with the little wagon & mules arrived from the mill [in Houston County] having left there on Wednesday last, taking just 4 days to come down. He left my little woman and babies well. The boys still at work housing the potatoes. weather clear and cool, with a hard frost at night. [*Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog . . . and "the little woman" is his sister . . . as well as the wife of the writer of this Journal . . . ]
