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 Lee 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.
