In the forenoon Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp], I and the boys went to work and repaired the mill forebay. In the evening the boys pulled and hauled corn. they made one load from the lower field. I ground 4½ bushels of corn. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] went out hunting chinquepins but with rather poor success. at night a traveler staid all night with us. weather clear and pleasant.
*This Sam and Nellie are 2nd great-grandparents to the Keeper of this family history blog.
