To day the boys are still at work planting corn in the lower field. In the evening I went fishing with the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & children. we had some little success. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 24 bushels of corn and then went down to Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and remained there all night. 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.
