Saturday, December 16th, 1865

To day I am still at work at the warehouse. Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall] missed the chill and fever. Frank Stewart has a relapse and is now very sick with diarrhea. At night Mrs. Beale [Elizabeth Lemaire Beale nee Waring*] and her whole family with three servants and seven horses arrived from Montgomery County, and stopped with me, to be taken care of until she can arrange to go to housekeeping. Weather cloudy and cold, with light drizzling rain. [*This Mrs. Beale is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.]
