To day Emily Peacock & Jane Milford left for their respective homes. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] & William Roberts came home from Mother's [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] drove down the(re) and spent the night. My poor old horse Hawk after a lingering illness of several months laid down and died, he had been a faithful and serviceable horse to me while living, poor old horse. I regret his death but as all must die let him go. Weather clear and pleasant.
