To day Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] rode out with the boys hog hunting and succeeded in finding and driving up six. Capt. Peacock arrived from Parker's bluff on his way to Houston and stopped for the night. Father [Joshua James Hall] sent two hogs up in the cart which weighed 295 lbs. Weather cloudy and misting, but very cold, although it is moderating.
