To day I sent the boys out after a beef, they succeeded in Killing a very fine one. I am still sick, but slowly improving. Hicks ground one bushel of corn. My daughter Florence [Florence Mahala Hall] attained the fourth anniversary of her birth day. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] and the little Major [James Hall Sharp] are both quite sick. Weather cloudy and rather cool.
