Monday, March 4th, 1861

To day in consequence of our horses having escaped, we were compelled to remain and take dinner with Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts]. In the evening however our horses having been found the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], Florence & myself left in the buggy for home. Bill is at work on the mill house. weather clear and rather warm for the Season.

*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. She is the mother of "the little woman" which makes her the mother-in-law as well as the step-mother of JMH.
