Thursday, January 12th, 1865

To day I rode 28 miles, gathering up pork for the families of soldiers, having taken with me the little wagon & mules. Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] came up and I let Mother have 100 lbs of flour. Hicks ground 8 bushels of wheat & 18 bushels of corn. Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall] had a chill & fever. Weather clear and cold.

*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
