To day I drove my horse & buggy down to Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] with the children. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] rode down on Hawk. We all spent the day there. Mr. Butler passed on his way home from Magnolia. Bill caught a fine mess of fish. Weather clear and cool, with a high boisterous wind all day.
*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma, and is married to Mahala's son, Samuel Houston Sharp.
