To day the boys finished replanting & hoeing the corn in the bottom field and commenced splitting rails to enclose the mill field. Father [Joshua James Hall] & Frank Stewart left for Huntsville. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp]went out hunting and killed a fine deer. In the evening the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], children & I went down in the buggy to see Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts], who is sick again. Roberta [Hall] came up and I sent her and Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] home on Hawk. we remained all night with Mother. weather changeable & very cold for the season of the year.
