Friday, September 4th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work hauling logs to build the cotton house. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] went hunting and succeeded in killing another fine large buck. My son James [James Wrigley Hall] is still sick. In consequence of the low stage of water in the pond, the mill could do no grinding. Ellen came up and brought Pet [Florence Mahala Hall] home who went down with Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] yesterday and spent the night with her. weather clear & hot.
