Friday, March 6th, 1863

To day Hicks is hunting my horse Gladiator. he returned home at night without finding him. The other boys are still at work hauling my things from the bluff [Hall's Bluff on the Trinity River] each wagon having made one load. I am engaged in fixing up the things at home and in putting down matting on the floors. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 51 bushels of corn. weather cloudy with occasional light showers of rain and very windy.

*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.
