Thursday, September 10th, 1863

To day the boys were compelled to go into the woods after more logs to complete the Cotton house. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts], Father [Joshua James Hall] & Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] came up and spent the day. Clara & Carroll are still very sick, so much so as to require the attention of a Physician, in consequence of which I sent for Dr. Murchison. Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] was again taken with the fever. In consequence of the low water in the pond the mill done no grinding. weather clear & hot.
