Friday, February 28th, 1862

To day the steamer Ruthven went down the river on a pleasure excursion and returned in the evening. There were a great many ladies on board. had quite a pleasant party and time passed swiftly and pleasantly. I am engaged at the warehouse. I received a very interesting letter from Sam Sharp*, who has been confined up the Country for some months. The boys are at work on my fence. weather clear & pleasant. [*Sam Sharp is the 2nd great-grandpa of the Keeper of this blog.]
