To day the boys are still at work in the bottom field pulling hay. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] rode my horse Rob to Crockett and remained there for the night. I am engaged thrashing peas. Bill is recovering from his sickness. Jemima was taken with fever and so it goes as soon as one is well another is taken down. In consequence of the low stage of water the mill could not grind. weather changeable and warm with indications of rain. Ther: 88°.
