To day the boys are still at work hauling logs & preparing to put up the cotton house. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] rode over to Mr. Keen's after my saddle and also to the Post office. Father [Joshua James Hall] came up to see us but did not remain long. My son James [James Wrigley Hall] missed his chill and fever. In consequence of the low water the mill done no grinding. weather clear and hot.
