To day the boys are still at work in the woods splitting boards. John is still at work in the garden. Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall], Jim [James Wrigley Hall] and the little Major [James Hall Sharp] are all sick with a fever. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up and spent the day with us. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 5½ bushels of wheat. weather changeable and warm until night when the wind hauled around to the north, making it very cold with a hard shower of rain.
