Friday, April 13th, 1866

To day I am still at work at the ware house. The Steamers Shreveport and Ruthven came down the river ladened with cotton and pretty well torn up. In consequence of the raft they were compelled to lay up. The river still continues to rise and I am fearful there will be a general overflow. Weather cloudy and rather cool with a very hard rain.
