Saturday, August 19th, 1865

To day the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] again missed her fever, and I now think she has entirely recovered from her late indisposition. I went up town to attend a meeting of the City Council and was by said Council elected Mayor of the City of Liberty. after a full organization & election of all city officers, the Council adjourned until the next regular meeting. I purchased from Mr. Bristley one pound of candles at fifty cents, and for which I yet owe him. Weather clear & hot. Ther: 92°.
