To day the boys are at work fixing up a fence around the cotton house. Dr. Murchison came to see Nellie* and the little Major [James Hall Sharp] who are still sick. Mother** came up and took Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] & Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] home with her. Hicks ground 3 bushels of corn. Lieut. Allen stopped with me for the night on his way up the Country. Weather cloudy and warm.
