Monday, May 2nd, 1864

To day the boys are at work in the lower field. Billy Stewart and Billy Wingfield came out from Crockett. I went fishing with them. we had good success. I caught the largest trout that has ever been caught out of the mill pond. Hicks ground 10 bushels of corn. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] & Pet [Florence Mahala Hall] rode down to Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and spent the night. Weather clear and pleasant.

*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. Mahala is also the mother-in-law as well as the step-mother of JMH.
