To day Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & Father [Joshua James Hall] came up to our house. I gave Father my fine double barrel shotgun. I sent Charley Hall to Mr. Lacy's for the small ? wagon, who returned with it in the evening. I am to give Lacy $100 for the wagon. Still at work in covering in the Mill house. Mother & the children remained all night. weather clear & pleasant.
