To day the boys are at work thrashing out barley. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] drove my John mule and the buggy and I rode hawk to Crockett and back in order to fix up and send forward Sam Sharp's [Samuel Houston Sharp] clothing. I received from Mr. Downes in Crockett five pair of shoes and 3 balls of cotton thread. Hicks ground 4 bushels of corn. My son James [James Wrigley Hall] attained his second year. Weather clear & cool with frost at night.
