Friday, March 20th, 1863

To day the boys are still splitting rails at the lower field. John is still up at John Williams' hauling cotton to the gin. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 42 bushels of corn. I paid T.R. Dailey for 21 bales of cotton, weighing 9279 lbs. also for 15,000 lbs of lint cotton. I drove my horse Gladiator & the buggy to Crockett in order to carry Margaret Hall home. while in Crockett I purchased some cow bells 4 in number. I also sold my office in town to Mr. Downes for the sum of $1200. I also sold to Mr. Harlan my yoke of steers running up at Parkers for the sum of 50$. weather clear & pleasant.

*This Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog. He is also the brother-in-law as well as the step-brother of JMH.
