Wednesday, August 31st, 1864

To day I went down to the mill in the little wagon with the boys. we took up the old floor in the mill forebay and put in all new sleepers. I had the assistance of Mrs. Bird's boy Emory and 3 from Father's [Joshua James Hall] to wit: Chester, Martin & Joe. We undertook to stop a leak we found in the head spiling of the mill but were not successful. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode down to Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & spent the day. Weather clear & hot. Ther: 94°. Thus closes my notes for the month of August as well as the summer, but as it is not the end of warm weather I will give the state of the Ther: for one Month more.
