Sunday, May 27th, 1860


To day the little woman in company with Mr. Hepperla went to see her mother and in returning was thrown from Mustapha through the negligence of the one who fastened on the saddle. no hurt however only a little vexed. Bill & Martin made another load to day. Sam Sharp still sick. Weather clear dry & warm.




Crockett Argus, began publication in 1857. John C. Hepperla, publisher, died of typhoid fever at Camp McLeod, Va., in 1861. His office was located on the SW corner of the public square and he shared with W. A. Stewart and James M. Hall, who owned the building. Hepperla favored H.R. Runnels for governor in 1857, and opposed Sam Houston. "Come Now and Let Us Reason Together" was this paper's motto.
