Friday, September 23rd, 1864

To day I sent the boys after some timber to make a wagon bed. I am engaged in weaving and finished the surcingles. I then warped and beamed and drew in a set of bridle reins, and commenced weaving them. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & Pet [Florence Mahala Hall] are both better. Jemima was taken with another congestive chill. Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] still here. Hicks ground 2 bushels of corn. Weather variable, windy and very hot. Ther: 94°.
