To day the boys are at work at and finished getting timber for the stables. John is at work hauling the timber in. Sam ground 8 bushels of corn and 3 bushels of wheat. Fawn's [Florence Mahala Hall] arm is still improving and will now get well in the course of one month without any serious harm. I am sore afflicted with rheumatism in the right hip and not able to get about. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and Roberta [Berta Downes Halyard nee Hall] came up to see the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] and spent the day. Weather cloudy with occasional showers of rain & rather cold.
