To day I gave the boys holliday until Thursday next. I let Bill ride one of my mules across the river to see his old Mistress Mrs. Tubbs. Captain Peacock left for Magnolia. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] made Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] a pair of shoes. I ground 7 bushels of wheat. Burt* [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] is still here and has been for several days past. Weather cloudy & cold with showers of rain.
*This Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog. Burt is his half-sister.
