To day the boys are at work pulling and hauling corn. they made two loads from the lower field. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] with Jim [James Wrigley Hall] rode down to Mothers [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and there spent the day. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] & I ground 26 bushels of corn and 4 bushels of wheat. In the evening Father [Joshua James Hall] & Mother came up with the little woman & children. weather clear and very pleasant.
