Thursday, May 7th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work splitting rails to enclose the mill field. I went fishing and caught a nice mess. In the evening the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], children & myself returned home from Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] when Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] & Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] drove down there to remain with her. she is still quite sick. Sam ground 15½ bushels of corn before he left. The little woman & I set out some potato slips. weather clear & cold as much so as to require a fire for comfort.
