To day I am at work at the warehouse. The Steamer Emory arrived from the up river with 200 Bales of Cotton on board and proceeded on her voyage to Galveston. I rode up town and remained there until dinner. Mrs. Massie left for home after working for the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] 33 days and for which I paid her in full. Mrs. Baldwin came down and spent the day. Capt. John Redmond left for Houston. At night a man by the name of Jilks was Killed in town by a man named Gibson. Weather clear and pleasant.
