Tuesday, March 24th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work fixing up the fence around the lower field. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] rode out hunting cows & calves but without any success. he however killed a fine turkey. I ground 23 bushels of corn. Charles Leaverton & Joseph Wright came out to see me & remained for dinner. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode down to see Mother [Mahala Lee Sharp Hall nee Roberts] who is sick and confined to her bed. weather clear & cold with a considerable frost at night.
