To day the boys are at work pulling and hauling corn. they made two loads from the lower field. I ground 4 bushels of wheat, after which Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] & I worked on the mill forebay. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up and spent the day. when she returned in the evening she carried Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] home with her. Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] came up and remained all night with us. weather clear and quite pleasant.
