Monday, April 10th, 1865

To day John F. Carr, John Beazley & myself with 6 negro fellows left Smithfield on the flat boat in route for Liberty. we dropped down the river 30 miles and tied up for the night. At home Hicks ground 5 bushels of corn. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] let Mrs. John Wortham have 50 lbs of flour. Weather cloudy & cool with a rain throughout the day & very disagreeable at night.
