Saturday, December 3rd, 1864

To day the boys are at work on the garden fence. My mouth is still quite sore although recovering. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode down to Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] came home with her. Hicks ground 10 bushels of corn. Weather changeable and cold, with a hard frost at night.
