Saturday, October 24th, 1863

To day the boys are still hauling cotton from Mr. Leaverton's gin and made 11 loads. I ground 6½ bushels of corn. In the evening the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], children and myself in the buggy and Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] on hawk all rode out to gather hickory nuts. we succeeded very well. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] went out hunting but without any luck. Weather clear & cold with another hard frost at night.
