Saturday, March 2nd, 1861

To day I visited Dailey's store and also went to the Post office to get my mail matter, and returned in the evening. I found Father [Joshua James Hall], Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] had gone to visit Mrs. Bird. They returned in the evening and Father & Mother went home at night. weather cloudy with drizzling rain but rather too cold to rain hard.

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