To day I am engaged at the Warehouse making out bills of lading and shipping freight. Hicks is engaged hauling. Mrs. Massie is still here. Roberta [Downes Halyard nee Hall] about the same, although able to go to school. The Steamer Col. Stell which has been lying here for some time left for the up river there now being a sufficient swell in the [Trinity] river to let her proceed. My cough is greatly improved. Weather variable and cool with a keen North wind blowing.
