Thursday, January 15th, 1863

To day Sam Sharp and I with the boys are engaged in killing hogs. we killed six. In the evening the boys worked on the garden posts. weather cloudy and cold with a strong wind blowing from the north. at night there was a hard freeze, the ice forming from ¼ of an inch to an inch in all the vessels that had water standing in them. The ice cicles also hanging from the limbs of the trees and the eves of the houses to the length of about six inches, being decidedly the coldest night of the winter.
