Wednesday, April 8th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work in the bottom field preparing it for planting. I assisted the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] in working the garden. Robert & Frank Stewart came up to see me and to the latter I loaned my horse Ratler to ride to Crockett. in the evening he returned in company with W.A. Stewart & Charles Leaverton. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 23½ bushels of corn and then drove my horse & buggy down to Mothers [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] after Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire], all of whom returned in the evening. The little woman & myself went out fishing with tolerable success. After supper Frank Stewart & Charles Leaverton went down to Mothers & Billy Stewart remained with me all night. weather clear & pleasant.

*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.
