Monday, November 24th, 1862

To day I am busy writing. Mr. & Mrs. Parkins came over on the cars from Houston. At night the ladies of Liberty gave a grand tableau representation at the Court house, the proceeds of which are to be disbursed for the benefit of the soldiers in the Southern Army. At the exhibition I had to act as scene manager, Master of Ceremonies, take my part in the various tableaux and in fact was a perfect Major Domo of the affair. The house although very large was crowded, there not being less than three hundred persons present. The receipts being about one hundred and sixty-five dollars. The Tableaux were received with great eclat and every thing passing off to the entire satisfaction of the audience as well as all the parties concerned. weather clear & rather cool.
