Thursday, March 19th, 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. I drove my horse Gladiator and the buggy to Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & back six times in order to carry The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] and the children down there visiting. I went fishing with Frank Stewart. we had very poor success. Mr. Dailey's wagon hauled 6 more bales of cotton. The mill done no grinding. weather changeable & warm with strong prospects of rain.

*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma, and is Mahala's daughter-in-law.
