Saturday, July 23rd, 1864

To day the boys commenced pulling fodder in the mill field. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], Florence [Florence Mahala Hall] & I drove down to the mill in the buggy but did not stay long. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] came up from Father's [Joshua James Hall] and brought Berta [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] home with her. Father came up in the evening and took Berta home. I put up the little woman's loom ready for work. Weather clear and hot. Ther: 95°.
