To day I went home and found Bill at work on the mill house. In the evening the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & Florence [Hall] with Father [Joshua James Hall], Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] came up. They returned home late in the evening. This being my birth day I took a milk punch. weather changable & warm for the time of year.
*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. She is also the step-mother as well as the mother-in-law of JMH.
