Sunday, January 31st, 1864

To day I remained at home writing up this journal. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts], Mrs. Brooks and the children came up and spent the day with the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp]. Mr. Wiesnowsky came out from Crockett and got the sign that I painted for Mr. Cox. He went down to Father's [Joshua James Hall] after the piano that the little woman had given Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] but did not succeed in obtaining it. Weather cloudy and cool with occasional showers of rain. Thus closes my jottings for the month of January just past and gone.
