To day the boys are still at work pulling and hauling corn. they made two loads. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] is confined to her bed with neuralgia in the face or tiedouloureux [tic douloureux]. she has this day attained the 23rd anniversary of her birth day. I ground 9½ bushels of corn. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] went out hunting and killed a fine turkey. weather changeable and rather cool.
