Monday, January 26th, 1863

To day the boys are at work on the garden fence. Sam Sharp is still at work making the loom for Mother [i.e., Mahala Lee Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and progressing very well. Roberta & Toby [i.e., Horace Oscar Hall] came up to see Nellie [i.e., Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] and the little Stranger [i.e., James Hall "Major" Sharp] and who are doing very well. I ground 8 bushels of corn. weather cloudy and cold with occasional showers of rain. at night there was a hard freeze.
