Wednesday, January 9th, 1861

To day I went up to the mill to see John Harwell & John Williams in relation to their working the mill for the year, but Williams could not agree to the requirements wanted and thus his claim or proposition was rejected. I remained for dinner and then went to Mothers [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts]. I loaned Father $8 in money. Weather cloudy & cold.

*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
