To day the boys are at work in putting up a horse lot fence. I made a brooch holder for the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp]. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 21½ bushels of corn. The little woman planted raddish seed in the garden. weather cloudy with misting rain occasionally. At night it rained hard throughout the entire night, covering the face of the earth with water. it was a cold & disagreeable rain.
