To day I went with the boys and run out the field tract of land. when I returned home I found Mr. Horn waiting to see me and to whom I paid in full for the Cotton I purchased at Mr. McElroys sale also for 15,000 lbs. seed Cotton I purchased at Moreland's sale. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] with the children drove my horse & buggy down to see Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] who is still quite sick. weather clear & pleasant.
