Monday, August 15th, 1864

To day the boys are engaged in killing and saving a beef. To my great detriment my little wagon was sent to Crockett, which prevented me from getting my beef until nearly night. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode down to Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & spent the day. Florence [Florence Mahala Hall] still has fever. Jemima was taken with a congestive chill which lasted about two hours. Mrs. Keen & Rachael came up and remained all night. Weather clear & very hot. Ther: 94°.
