To day I had the mill rocks taken up. I remained at home writing up this journal. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] still sick but is improving & bids fair to recover from her present attack without injury. weather cloudy, warm and a drizzling rain throughout the entire day which made it very disagreeable. at night it rained in torrents, swelling the Elk Hart creek very high almost to overflow.
*This Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
