Monday, June 4th, 1866

To day I am at work at the warehouse. Hicks & Steve are hauling sand to fill up the blacksmith shop. I am still suffering with the cough & itch. at night the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] had a magnificent oyster supper, to which she invited Col. Wrigley & family, Mr. & Mrs. Trowell, Ed.Jones, Mrs. Buckley, and various others. The affair passed off very pleasantly, and to the general satisfaction of all. Weather variable and hot with occasional showers of rain. Ther 86°.
