To day I sent Hicks to Crockett with my horse hawk for Mrs. Beale* [Elizabeth Lemaire Beale nee Waring] to ride out on who arrived at night on a visit to see her daughter [Nellie* aka Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire]. I sent John to Mr. Keen's to get him to come over and fix my mill irons. Having taken up the mill stone I can do no corn grinding until the irons are repaired. I however ground 7 bushels of wheat. Weather clear and cool, with a frost at night.
*Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mrs. Beale is her mother.
