To day the boys are still at work chopping out the bottom field. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] rode up to Mrs. Beasley's and finished weighing the cotton that I had purchased from her which amounted to 20,000 lbs. in the seed. John came home from the shop with the wagon all well mended & in complete running order. Dr. Keen came over & spent the day. we went fishing & had very good luck. I ground 6½ bushels of corn. weather clear & hot. Ther: 87°.
