To day the boys are still at work pulling corn and hauled one load in. Roberta [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] is still here. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode down to Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] in the wagon after some thread to weave surcingles. I am engaged working around the house.

THE CEMETERY

We notice that our town cemetery is going to destruction very fast. The gates and paling in several places are torn down and cows and hogs are constantly inside the enclosure. If we have no authorities to attend to this matter, we suggest that funds be raised by subscription for the purpose of putting the cemetery in proper order.

BOX IN NEW COMPANY

Marion Box, son of Reverend S. Box, has joined Captain Arrington's company after first joining Capt. Black's company when he was under eighteen years of age.
