Thursday, March 13th, 1862

To day the steamer Ruthven arrived from Galveston bringing up but little freight. I am engaged in making out accounts. But little done in the way of business. Alexandrien*, who had been staying at my house, left for her Mother's*. Capt. James A. Scruggs & Company arrived from Polk County and quartered at the ware house. The boys are still in the woods getting posts. weather changeable & warm with drizzling rain, and at night a very hard rain. [*Alexandrien is the 2nd great-grandma of the Keeper of this blog . . . and her Mother is the 3rd great-grandma]
