To day I took Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] with me and went fishing in the lower creek. we had fine success. Mrs. Byrd came down and spent the day. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] rode down to Mothers' [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and carried Toby with her home. Mr. Butler from Magnolia on his way home to Cold Springs stopped. Weather clear and warm.
*This Nellie is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma, and is Nellie's mother-in-law.
