To day the boys are at work pulling corn, and hauling it in. They made one load with the wagon. Roberta [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] came up from Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] to remain some days. Mr. Morgan stopped in for breakfast. he has just returned from the Saline and succeeded in obtaining for me 20 pounds of wool, for which I paid him 3½$ per pound. he left for home. Hicks ground 2 bushels of corn. Weather clear & warm. Ther: 84°.
