Tuesday, March 31st, 1863

To day the boys are still busy plowing the lower field in order to plant corn. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & children drove down to Mother's in the buggy. I went down with them horse back. we found Mother [Mahala Lee Sharp Hall nee Roberts] but little better. Frank Stewart came up home with me & remained for dinner. In the evening the little woman with Margaret Hall [his daughter?] came home from Mothers. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 14½ bushels of corn. weather clear & cold, with a hard frost at night, which I think has about finished what was left from last night's frost. Thus I close my jottings of little events that occured around me for the month of March.
