Friday, January 29th, 1864

To day the boys are still at work in the bottom field. Hicks still at work covering in the cribs. I ground 18 bushels of corn. Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts], Father [Joshua James Hall], Mrs. Brooks (whose school has just terminated) and the children, came up to see the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp]. In the evening Capt. Peacock and Mr. Fitzsimmons arrived from Liberty on their way to Magnolia. they stopped for the night. The Capt. purchased for me the articles I sent for by him. he gave for a second hand gutta percha band 12$ per foot. just think of it when in good times or before the war it could have been purchased new for 50 cents per foot. Weather changeable & warm with strong indications of rain.

*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
