Thursday, February 18th, 1864

To day the boys are still at work plowing in the bottom field. Hicks finished the hen house for the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp]. I remained at the house around the fire to keep from freezing. The weather is cloudy and bitter cold with a hail & snow storm. at night it was exceedingly cold, with a hard freeze and frost.
