Saturday, March 28th, 1863

To day the boys finished the fence around the lower field sufficiently high to plant under. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] & Margaret Hall [his daughter?] drove my horse & buggy down to see Mother [Mahala Lee Sharp Hall nee Roberts], who is still quite sick and confined to her bed. I rode down to the field & thence to see Mother. The little woman [Margaret Sharp Stewart nee Hall] is at work in the garden planting peas, beans & other vegetables. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 45 bushels of corn. weather cloudy with occasional showers of rain & very cold for the time of year.
