To day John is at work in the garden. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] planted english peas. I am at work repairing my saddle. James Roberts & John, early in the morning again went to the pidgeon roost & killed 22 of them. Roberts, Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire], Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] & Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] are still here. Weather variable & rather warm.
*This Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Burt and Toby are half-siblings to her husband, Sam Sharp, AND to JMH.
