Monday, October 5th, 1863

To day the boys are at work pulling and hauling corn. they made two loads from the lower field. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] and I finished lining & putting the door to the second corn crib. I ground 6½ bushels of corn. Roberta [Berta Downes Haylard nee Hall] & Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] came up to see us, but did not remain long. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], children and myself moved back into our old bed chamber, out of which we have been sleeping for the last two months. weather clear and quite pleasant.
