Friday, January 1st, 1864

This being the first day of the current year, I commence my notes of the events that take place immediately around me, and in which I have any interest. 

The boys are at work chopping and hauling wood, which is very essential during the present cold spell. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] & I ground 17 bushels of corn and 10 bushels of wheat. 

Weather clear and bitter cold. I think some what colder than yesterday. I thought I would freeze at night although I kept a fire in my room the whole time.

*This Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog.
