Wednesday, February 22nd, 1865

To day John is engaged hauling fire wood. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Roberts] is engaged in gardening. I sent to Billy Stewart by his boy Harry 80 lbs of flour which makes 140 lbs that he now owes me for. I this day attained the 46th anniversary of my birth day. Hicks ground 20 bushels of corn and 8 bushels of wheat. weather cloudy & warm with a rain throughout the day and night. The Elkhart creek is looming high.
