Thursday, March 31st, 1864

To day the boys are at work planting corn in the new ground. Hicks assisted me at the mill. we ground 5 bushels of wheat & 6 bushels of corn. I let Mr. Leatherman have calf skin & sole leather enough to make five pairs of shoes. He took the measure of the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire], Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts], Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] & myself and promised to have the shoes back in six weeks. I paid him 25$ for making them or 5$ per pair. He then left for home. Weather clear & cool. So closes my notes for the month of March.

*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. Mahala is also the mother of the little woman, as well as being the step-mother of JMH.
