Tuesday, March 17th, 1863

To day the boys are still splitting rails at the lower field. John still hauling Cotton up at Williams'. Sam* Sharp rode out hunting cows & calves. Mr. Dailey commenced hauling cotton & delivered 10 bales. Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up to see the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & children and while at home presented Sam Sharp with a little negro girl by the name of Clara, aged about 9 years. I finished Fawn's [Florence Mahala Hall] shoes. The Mill done nothing. weather clear & pleasant.

*This Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma, and is Sam's mother. She is also the step-mother as well as the mother-in-law of JMH.
