To day the boys are still at work fixing the fence around the lower field. I am busy at work in the garden assisting the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] in planting sundry kinds of vegetables. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 6½ bushels of corn. Mr. Leaverton came to see me in relation to some legal business and I drew for him a power of atty. weather cloudy with occasional showers of rain. at night it rained very hard & was quite cold.
