Thursday, August 4th, 1864

To day Bill is still at work pulling fodder. John returned from Crockett with 200 lbs of sugar and the saddle. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & Mrs. Keen came up and spent the day. Mrs. Keen again drew the thread in the harness & sley of the loom which the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] had had cut out. Florence [Florence Mahala Hall] & Josephine [Josephine Martha Hall] both had fevers. I am rather unwell myself. Weather changeable and hot. Ther: 93°.
