Tuesday, March 17th, 1863

To day the boys are still splitting rails at the lower field. John still hauling Cotton up at Williams'. Sam Sharp rode out hunting cows & calves. Mr. Dailey commenced hauling cotton & delivered 10 bales. Mother [Mahala Lee Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up to see the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & children and while at home presented Sam Sharp with a little negro girl by the name of Clara, aged about 9 years. I finished Fawn's [Florence Mahala Hall] shoes. The Mill done nothing. weather clear & pleasant.
