Tuesday, May 19th, 1863

To day the boys are at work getting out boards for the wagons & preparing them for a trip to Liberty. John is still over at the black smith shop. I rode over to Mr. Keen's and purchased from him a yoke of oxen for which I paid $150. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 8 bushels of corn. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] rode my horse Gladiator down to Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and back. Sam & Frank Stewart went out hunting with a view of remaining out all night. weather clear & warm.
