Wednesday, April 29th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work hoeing and replanting corn in the bottom field. John is still at work in hoeing the garden. I had to take up the Mill rocks and rebush the mill. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 19½ bushels of corn. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] & Pet [Florence Mahala Hall] drove down to Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & back in the buggy. In the evening we set out sweet potatoe slips. weather changeable & warm.

*This Sam and Nellie are 2nd great-grandparents to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma, and is Sam's mother.
