Friday, March 15th, 1863

To day the boys finished laying up the rails they had heretofore made to enclose the mill field and there not being sufficient for the job I sent them out to split more. Father [Joshua James Hall] came up and took dinner with us and from whom I purchased a pair of gold spectacles for which I paid him 25$. In the evening the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], children & myself drove down to Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] in the buggy. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 13 bushels of corn. weather changeable & warm with indications of rain.

*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa, and is Mahala's oldest living son.
