To day I sent the boys up to Mr. Penningtons to kill some hogs. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] finished the harness for Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and took it home to her. Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall] had a chill and fever. Hicks ground 10 bushels of wheat. Weather changeable and 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 Nellie's mother-in-law.
