Monday, February 9th, 1863

To day Hicks is still at work on the house fence. The other boys are out in the woods splitting rails. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] commenced gardening in the new garden having planted some english peas. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] finished & hung the gate to the house fence. I ground 8½ bushels of corn. Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] is still sick but improving rapidly. Mother [Mahala* Lee Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & Roberta [Hall] left for home. weather cloudy & warm with occasional showers of rain & very disagreeable so much so as to almost prevent any business from being done.

*This Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is his mother, and is the mother-in-law as well as the step-mother to JMH.
