Monday, June 6th, 1864

To day the boys are still at work in the lower field plowing out the corn. I rode up to see Mr. Keen who is very sick and from there I rode over to Dr. Murchison's to get some medicine for Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts]. Billy Stewart, W.F. Wingfield and Thos. Stubblefield came out from Crockett and stopped with me at the house. In the evening I rode down to Mother's to carry her the medicine. I found her much improved. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] still down there. Stewart & his party caught a fine mess of fish. Weather cloudy & warm with occasional showers of rain. Ther: 88°. Hicks ground 10 bushels of corn.
