Thursday, March 5th, 1863

To day I am engaged at the bluff [i.e., Hall's Bluff] in watching my things, and which I found in a damaged condition. The Steamer Alamo passed down the River [i.e., Trinity River] from Magnolia. she lay at the bluff about 2 hours & then proceeded on her way to Liberty. The boys are busy hauling my things home. they made 2 loads with the mule team & one with the ox team. in the last load by the mule team I returned home from the bluff. My horse Gladiator run off & Hicks has been out all day hunting him but without success. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] is engaged in pecking the mill rocks and putting them in good running order. weather cloudy & cold with very high wind blowing and occasional showers of rain & very disagreeable.
