To day the boys are at work in the bottom field pulling hay. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & children drove down to Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] in the buggy and there spent the day. I ground 5½ bushels of corn and 6 bushels of Rye. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] & I thrashed out two bushels of peas. Nellie's [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] thumb is about well. Bill is still sick. weather clear & hot. Ther: 88°. Mr. Joseph Richardson of Liberty stopped for the night at my house on his way to Magnolia.
