Thus closes my notes for the month of December and also for the year just passed and gone and now numbered with the things that were. Whether the Almighty will spare me to chronicle the daily events of the incoming year is more than I know but trusting in Him I shall enter upon the pleasing task, which is useful as a reference and may be profitable to those who have an interest in me.
To day I went to Crockett to fix the papers in the mill trade but upon arriving there done nothing and returned home in the night. The hands are knocking of the corn rows. Weather cloudy with hard showers of rain and very unpleasant.
