Saturday, May 18th, 1861

To day the ladies from home in company with Ed. Jones went out in hunt of black berries. they had not been gone long before the winds came and the rain descended in torrents when they all returned looking more like drowned rats than human beings. The Steamer Mary Lenard came down the river and in attempting to land carried away part of the lower landing and lost over board a part of her cargo but effected a landing finally against the steamer Swan.
