To day we done comparatively nothing, waiting on the water to fall in order to repair the levee. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] & Mr. Elisha Daughtery came up and spent the day. They took Pet [Florence Mahala Hall] down to her grand Ma's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] with them. Weather clear & cold with a hard frost and freeze at night.
*This Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma, and is Nellie's mother-in-law.
