Wednesday, November 25th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work in the woods splitting boards. John went up to Mrs. Bird's to haul in and house her potatoes. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 4 bushels of wheat. I am still at work painting Mr. Cox's sign. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up and spent the day. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode up to Mrs. Birds and while she was absent my daughter Florence [Florence Mahala Hall] fell from the house gallery and dislocated the Radius bone of the right fore arm at the elbow joint. I sent for Dr. Murchison who came to see her and remained all night. Weather clear & cold with a hard frost at night.
