To day John is at work plowing in the point field. I am still at work on Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] loom. Hicks ground 1 bushel of wheat & 1 bushel of corn. at night Tom Neely & 5 other men attempted to assassinate me. The men who were with Neely were unknown to me. Weather variable and rather warm.
*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
