To day I am busy as salesman in the Store, in consequence of Sam H. Sharp who on yesterday took unto himself a wife and is now sticking so close to her as a plaster. He being the regular salesman, has now thrown that duty on me doubtless for a few days but I rather anticipate it will not last long. Capt. Wrigley and his company are still in camp. weather changeable & warm.

To day I am engaged as salesman in the store with pretty active trade. Be it remembered & known that Samuel H.
