Friday, February 6th, 1863

To day the boys are still splitting rails in the woods. Hicks still at work on the house fence. I ground 30 bushels of corn, when the rattle staff broke and I had to send Hicks to the shop in order to get it mended. Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] is still sick but I think improving. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] made another clothes horse & then went hunting but without any success. weather clear & very cold.
