Wednesday, March 25th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work fixing up the fence around the lower field. I had all the horses turned out but Gladiator attempted to run away. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] followed him and overtook and led him back. he succeeded in getting off about 4 miles. I rode down to see Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] who is still confined to her bed. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] is engaged working in the garden. Sam ground 17 bushels of corn. 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 mother-in-law as well as the step-mother of JMH.
