Saturday, June 7th, 1862

To day I am busy in the conscript office. The steamer Ruthven arrived from Galveston with a heavy freight and the boys are busy storing it away in the ware house. Sam & Nellie* left in the buggy on a visit to West Liberty. Charley Lund went off to a fish fry, leaving me all alone in the office to transact all kinds of business. My pet babe Fawn is still improving. weather clear & hot. Ther: 93°. [*Sam & Nellie are 2nd great-grandparents of the Keeper of this blog . . . Nellie's mother (referred to as Mrs. Beale in this Journal) lived in West Liberty]
