To day I and the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] with Florence visited Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts]. I also went to Beaver's landing to see the Steamers Lucy Guin & Alamo which are now lying at that landing. In the evening I returned to Mother's where the little woman & myself remained for the night. weather cloudy & very disagreeable.
*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. She is also the stepmother as well as the mother-in-law of JMH.
