Tuesday, February 9th, 1864

To day the boys are at work plowing in the bottom field. Mr. Coburn passed on his way to Magnolia with a gang of impressed negroes in the government service. John is at work hauling the logs in to build the hen house. Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up in the evening and Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] rode home with her. I ground 1½ bushels of corn. Weather clear and warm, but cold at night.

*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma, and is Mahala's daughter-in-law.
