Friday, January 9th, 1863

To day I set two of the boys to hauling wood and one to getting out garden posts. I ground only 3 bushels of corn. In the evening Sam Sharp* returned on Rob from the camp at Shilo he having been discharged from his enrollment in the Militia in consequence of a severe gun shot wound he received when quite young. weather changeable and warm with occasional showers of drizzling rain. [*This Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this blog . . . and this Journal entry is the first we ever heard of the story of the gun shot wound.]
