To day John went up to Mr. Keen's with the wagon to do some hauling for him. I rode my mule John up to Prewitt's tan yard & back a distance of 36 miles in order to get some leather but was unsuccessful. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] is still sick with the fever. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up and spent the day and took Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] home with her. Mother got 22½ lbs of cotton. Weather changeable & hot. Ther: 90°.
