Saturday, April 28th, 1866

To day I am still at work at the warehouse. Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] and Roberta [Downes Halyard nee Hall] are recovering from the measles. Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall], little Joe and Conney are still quite sick with it. Fanny went up to Mrs. Raniers and purchased a fine mess of strawberries for dinner. The Steamer Indian No. 2 arrived from Galveston with Maj. Bolling and Mrs. Stanwood on board, by the latter I received my lamps, oil and pocket knife and for which I paid her $12.50. The Steamer left for the upper [Trinity] river with a heavy load on board. Weather clear and pleasant.
