Tuesday, August 23rd, 1864

To day Bill is still at work thrashing out wheat. Father [Joshua James Hall] & Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] left for Magnolia. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] rode down to Mother's and remained there to take care of the children during their absence. I rode down to the Tanner house to see if I could procure any lumber. The children still have the chills & fevers. Weather variable and warm. Ther: 84°.
