Saturday, November 30th, 1861

To day the Steamer Ruthven arrived from Galveston with a very large freight. There is a general leaving of Galveston for fear the blockading vessels will commence bombarding the City. I am busily engaged in storing away freight in the ware house. Business otherwise dull. The hands are progressing slowly in laying the floors of my new house. weather clear & cool.
