To day the boys are still at work hauling logs to build the corn crib. Sam Sharp rode my horse Gladiator and I drove my horse Rob and buggy to Crockett and back. while there I obtained my discharge from conscription as a Miller and Sam was also discharged as an Assistant Miller. Father [Joshua James Hall] and Roberta [Berta Downes Halyard nee Hall] came up and waited for our arrival from Crockett. After supper Father returned home. Burt however remained all night. Hicks ground 2 bushels of corn. weather changeable and rather cold for the time of the year.
