To day the boys are at work in the lower field. Sam Sharp left on Riley in route for Liberty. Jimmy Collins came out and spent the day. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] is still down at Mothers [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts], that is she left for Mother's after Sam left for Liberty. Hicks ground 12 bushels of wheat. Col. Waller sent a guard to the mill who now have it in possession. The names of the guard are as follows: John Burrows & I.P. Baugh. Weather clear & cold with a hard frost at night.
