Monday, September 21st, 1863

To day the boys finished hauling logs to build the body or walls of the corn crib. Mr. Dailey delivered 1635 lbs of lint cotton. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode hawk down to Mothers [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and back after some candles, which she succeeded in getting. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] rode over to Mr. Keen's after my saddle which he got but it was not mended in fact it was worse broken then when I took it for repairs. I ground 5 bushels of corn. weather clear & hot but cool at night.
