To day am quite well. The steamer Ruthven failed to make her regular trip. John Wrigley took the hands off and stoped all work on my house. Frank Stewart still hauling brick. Charley Lund returned home by the way of Houston on the rail road cars looking quite well after his visit to Galveston. Business very dull. weather changeable with wind blowing hard from the North. it abated and at night a hard frost which is the first of the season at least in or about my locality.
