Friday, May 22nd, 1863

To day Bill is still at work plowing the corn in the lower field. Hicks & John are still at work getting every thing ready for their trip to Liberty. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode down to Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and back after my bridle, but did not succeed in getting it. I am at work repairing my buggy harness for my trip to Liberty. Frank Stewart left for the army to join Capt. Smith's company of Burnett's Regiment in Genl. Walker's division. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 17 bushels of corn. weather cloudy & rather cool with occasional showers of rain.
