Sunday, June 5th, 1864

To day I rode my horse hawk up to Mrs. Brooks' & remained there for dinner. I learned from her of the death of Silas E. Keen who was wounded at the battle of Mansfield. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] and Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] came up to see the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] they did not remain long as they left Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] sick and had to return to wait upon her. Burt rode hawk home because the pony she rode up became refractory & would not be governed by her. Weather cloudy and warm with occasional showers of rain. Ther: 81°.
