Saturday, May 16th, 1863

To day the boys finished making rail bars and posts to enclose the mill field. I drove my horse Rob & buggy to Crockett in order to get me a pair of boots and while there I tendered to Wm. B. Stokes the agent of Herndon's estate the amount of principal & interest due on a note of hand I gave to his estate but he declined to receive the money. I also made L.E. Downes a title for 2 lots in Crockett viz lots 31 & 32. I returned home in the evening. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 37½ bushels of corn. weather clear & pleasant.

*This Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog.
