Friday, November 4th, 1864

To day the boys are still hauling wood. I sent John to Prewitt's tan yard after my shoes but did not get them. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] has recovered from her illness, but Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] & little Major [James Hall Sharp] are still sick. Wolf was also taken with fever. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & Mrs. Bird came up to see the sick. I wove one yard on the jeans. Hicks ground 9½ bushels of corn. Weather variable cold & very windy.
