To day my hands with the two of Mr. Leaverton's and two from Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] are at work on the mill levee. Sam Sharp and I finished repairing the mill forebay. I was drafted in Crockett to serve with the Militia. Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] is still sick and my son James [James Wrigley Hall] was taken with a chill and fever. Weather changeable and hot. Ther: 90°.
