Today I commence my notes of daily events that may happen immediately around me during the current year just began. Though they are of no interest to any one safe my own family. Nevertheless I cheerfully enter upon my task.
We all left home and rode down to Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] where we spent an agreeable day, returning home in the evening. A sick soldier stopped with us for the night. Weather clear and rather warm for the season of the year.
*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
