1862 November 11 farm near Savannah, Ohio

[from the diary of James Dinsmore Templeton, former musician and private in the 23rd Ohio]

Tuesday, Nov. 11, 1862

Went to work
this morning early
Husked corn over
in the meadow
husked until noon
after dinner went
back but had to
return & go to [Meads?]
to help thresh worked
there all afternoon
Have worked hard &
feel tired.
Cloudy, wintry &
threatening rain
was invited to a
party at Westmans
but did not go as I
was tired
