To day the boys commenced planting corn in the lower field. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] drove down to Mothers [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and spent the day there. I ground 5 bushels of wheat and 2½ bushels of corn. Maj. Smith stopped with me for the night. Weather clear and rather warm.
*This Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma, and is Nellie's mother-in-law.
