Saturday, January 26th, 1861

To day I went up home and found John & Bill had gotten through pulling down the old Machine shop. Bill ground 35½ bushels of corn. Frank Stewart went to hunt my oxen but without success. I sent Dick to Crockett and by him the little woman sent 13 doz. eggs. In the evening I returned to Mothers where the little woman & Florence are still staying. weather clear but cold with a hard frost at night.
