Tuesday, September 15th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work chopping logs to build a corn crib. I drove my horse Rob and buggy to Crockett and back in order to be discharged from conscription but so far have failed. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] rode my horse Gladiator to Crockett for a like purpose as myself but he also failed. Hicks made a sand bolster for the wagon and also ground 4 bushels of corn. Ellen came up from Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and brought Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] home with her. James [James Wrigley Hall] had another chill and fever. Wolf is still improving and might be pronounced entirely well. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] had turnip, raddish and mustard seeds sown. weather cloudy and warm with occasional showers of rain.
