Monday, November 2nd, 1863

To day the boys are at work digging potatoes and preparing to go into the woods to split boards to cover the cribs and stables. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up and spent the day with the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Roberts]. I ground 2½ bushels of corn and 1½ bushels of wheat. At night Thomas Keen came over, when he and Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] went out fire hunting but they had no success. Weather changeable and hot, with indications of rain.
