To day the boys are still at work pulling corn and hauled in two loads. Roberta [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] is still here. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] rode up to Mrs. Birds after Emily who came down and put the thread in the loom to weave the surcingles, after which the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] wove about one yard. I am at work around the house. Hicks ground 4 bushels of corn. Weather variable and warm. Ther: 84°.
