To day the boys are still at work splitting rails to enclose the mill field. I am at work in the garden. Father [Joshua James Hall] carried Roberta [Hall] & Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] up to the school and there entered them with Mrs. Beasley for the current session. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 3 bushels of corn. weather changeable & warm. [Note . . . Roberta (b. 1852) and Toby (b. 1854) are much younger half-siblings to J M Hall (b. 1819), the writer of this Journal, as well as to his wife, Margaret (b. 1840), aka "the little woman"]
