Friday, February 13th, 1863

To day the boys finished putting up the fence around the little field in front of the house. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] went to Brasher's and had a balance iron made for the mill. I ground 38 bushels of corn. weather cloudy & cool with occasional showers of rain. At night it rained very hard with severe thunder & lightning and a perfect hail storm. Masoline run away some time during the night. The day was as unpleasant as to prevent any work from being done on the place.
