Thursday, May 26th, 1864

To day the boys finished cradling the wheat, and then set out potato slips. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] left for home. Josephine [Josephine Martha Hall] is improving. I commenced making myself a lounge to sleep on throughout the summer if permitted to live. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] rode down to Mother's. Hicks ground 3 bushels of wheat. Weather variable & hot.
