Saturday, May 23rd, 1863

To day Bill is still at work plowing the corn in the lower field. Mr. Keen came over & I settled in full with him for the work he done on my wagons & buggy. Hicks with the little wagon and mules, and John with the large road wagon & four yoke of oxen left in route for Liberty. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] and children in the buggy and Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] riding Rat all went down to Mothers [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and then out after blackberries. I am at work setting out potato slips. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 16 bushels of corn. weather cloudy with occasional showers of rain in the morning but clear and warm in the evening.
