Monday, January 19th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work getting out garden posts. Sam Sharp, Hicks and myself are engaged in pecking the mill rocks and putting the mill in good running order, after which I ground 17½ bushels of corn. Mother [i.e., Mahala Lee Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up to see the little woman [i.e., Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], but returned in the evening. Sam Sharp went up to Mrs. Bird's to take a draft by which to make a loom for Mother. Nellie [i.e., Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] has entirely recovered from her indisposition. weather changeable and cold with a hard freeze & frost at night.
