Monday, July 17th, 1865

To day the Yankees reduced this point (Liberty) into possession and established head quarters at the Court house. they also opened a Provost Marshal's office to enforce the amnesty oath down the throats of the Southern people. Mr. Perkins came over from Houston on the train. I drove up town in my buggy to see the grand display of the infernal yankee troops. Weather variable and hot with a shower of rain. Ther: 92°.
