To day the boys cut up and salted down the hogs that Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] killed yesterday that is one half of the 3 that was cleaned down at Father's [Joshua James Hall] they weighed 205 lbs. Sam is at work making a pair of shoes. I ground 7 bushels of corn and 1 bushel of wheat. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] was taken very sick, with threatening symptoms of miscarriage. Weather clear & rather warm on the pork salted down.
*This Sam and Nellie are 2nd great-grandparents to the Keeper of this family history blog.
