To day I am still in Crockett in attendance upon the District Court. I collected from Mr. Casteel the sum of $4.50 on a/c of Ella Lodge I.O.O.F. I am nearly worn out in dancing attendance upon the Court. I was compelled to institute suit against J. C. Hepperla for the recovery of the "Argus Office" and also to sue out a writ of sequestration for its recovery because after patiently waiting for 2 years he (Hepperla) refused to pay me one red cent. weather clear & rather warm for the season of the year.
