To day the boys quit splitting boards and commenced pulling fodder which required their immediate attention. I ground 19 bushels of corn and 5½ bushels of Barley. I was enabled to grind this much because some person went to the upper mill and pulled up the gates, thereby giving me the benefit of their whole head of water. Roberta [Hall] came up but did not tarry long. weather clear & hot with indications of rain. Ther: 95°. at midnight the wagon arrived from Huntsville with the things obtained there by Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp]. It had very good success in the homeward trip.
