Tuesday, December 6th, 1864

To day the boys are at work on the garden & house yard fence. I worked on a pair of shoes for Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall]. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & children drove down to Mother's [Mahala Lee Sharp Hall nee Roberts] in the buggy and spent the day down there. Hicks ground 13 bushels of corn. Mother got 19½ lbs of cotton. Two soldiers stopped with me for the night. Weather variable and rather warm for the season.
