To day the boys finished pulling and hauling corn, having made two loads. I killed two fine ducks. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] & Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] came home. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up with them and spent the day. In the evening Mother & the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode up to see Mrs. Bird. In consequence of the low water the mill done no grinding. Weather clear and pleasant.
