To day the boys are at work plowing out the corn in the lower field. Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up, when her, the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & Pet [Florence Mahala Hall] went in the buggy to Dr. Murchison's and there spent the day. After they had left Capt. Stubblefield and his wife, came up and spent the day at the house with Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire]. I rode over to Mr. Keen's but did not stop long. In the evening I went fishing with fine success. Several gentlemen and ladies came out from Crockett on a fishing excursion. The following came & stopped at the house. Mrs. Collins, Mrs. Blair, Misses Gary, Stokes, Stewart, Dawson, Pritchard and Bodenhamer. Hicks ground 5 bushels of wheat. Weather clear and pleasant.
*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.
