Thursday, November 19th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work in the woods splitting boards. John is still hauling boards and made two loads. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came by to see the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] as she returned from Mrs. Birds. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground for Mother 104 lbs of flour, also two bushels of wheat for Mrs. Pridgen. Weather clear & pleasant until late in the evening when it clouded up and the wind came out of the north very severe, making it very cold at night. it rained exceedingly hard with a perfect tornado blowing.
