Wednesday, February 29th, 1860

We this day had Albert, TANNER & myself at work on the fence and reached the far corner with the worm. I let I. TANNER have 1 lb. of tobacco on a/c & Frank STEWART 5 lbs. on a/c @ 50 cts per lb. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] completed me the first flanel shirt I ever wore, and by the way it is pretty & comfortable and she has my greatful thanks for it. Weather cloudy, cold & extremely disagreeable.
