Friday, July 8th, 1864

To day John is at work hauling wood. Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall] is still quite sick, but I think recovering a little. Florence [Florence Mahala Hall] is also still sick. Hicks, Louisa, Conney and Clara all missed their fevers. Wolf however is not so fortunate. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and Mrs. Bird came and staid all night to assist the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] in waiting upon the sick. Father [Joshua James Hall], Mrs. Leaverton, Laura [Leaverton] & Isabella [Downes] called in to see Jimmy. Hicks ground 7 bushels of corn. Weather changeable & warm with a light shower of rain. Ther: 90°.
