Monday, November 16th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work in the woods splitting boards. John is at work in the new ground. I ground 17½ bushels of corn. Mr. Cox sent two signs out from Crockett for me to paint. Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] came up with letters for Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] from her Mother [Elizabeth Lemaire Beale nee Waring]. Weather clear and pleasant, but a hard frost and freeze at night.
