To day the boys are still at work in the woods splitting boards. John is at work in the new ground chopping wood. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up and spent the day. I ground 5 bushels of corn and 1 bushel of wheat. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] & I went hunting and killed 3 ducks. Weather clear and cool with a hard frost and freeze at night.
