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.
