Thursday, February 19th, 1863

To day the boys are still splitting rails. Hicks is at work making an axle-tree for the wagon. I finished the garden fence all complete and ground 38 bushels of corn. The water is drying up a little from the face of the earth. The Elk Hart is falling a little and I now think the mill levee is safe against this last freshet. Sam Sharp rode Rob to Crockett after Massaline who was there in jail and while in Crockett Sam sold the boy Massoline to Mr. Arrington for the sum of $1500. weather clear and a little cool.
