To day the boys are still at work fixing the fence around the lower field. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] went out hunting cows & calves but without any success. Margaret Hall [his daughter from 1st marriage] returned from her visit to Mrs. Leaverton's. I ground 26 bushels of corn and assisted the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] to work in the garden in planting squash & lima beans. weather changeable & rather cool for the season of the year.
