To day the boys are still at work hoeing & replanting corn in the bottom field. Charley Hall came out from Crockett to see me. I am busy working in the garden. Charles Leaverton & Frank Stewart came up on a visit. after dinner Charley Leaverton left for Crockett. Frank & Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] went fishing and had some success. Frank remained with us all night. Sam ground 47 bushels of corn. weather changeable & warm in the evening however the wind hauled around to the N.E. & blew very hard at the same time it clouded up & there was a very hard rain for about one hour attended with severe thunder & lightning & some hail.
