After travelling all night we arrived at Daniel Dailey's for breakfast. Then to Sumpter for dinner. Then to Livingston for supper, and there remained all night. The trip of this day was very unpleasant being crowded in a small coach only large enough for 6 passengers, but containing 14, inside & out, making it not only unpleasant but disagreeable. expenses of this day $2.50. weather cloudy with occasional showers of rain.
