Friday, October 30th, 1863

To day the boys are at work sowing wheat in the little field in front of the house. Sam* is still at work on his shoes. The little Major [James Hall Sharp] & James [James Wrigley Hall] are both with severe colds. I ground 6 bushels of corn and killed two ducks. Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] stopped in to see the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] and children as she returned from school. Weather changeable and cold with a hard frost and freeze at night, the ice forming full ½ inch thick.

*Samuel Houston Sharp, my 2nd great-grandpa
