To day the boys are still at work in the lower field. I worked on the loom. Hicks attended the mill and ground 12 bushels of corn. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] rode down to Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and remained there all night. Weather variable and cold with a considerable frost at night.
*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.
