Monday, February 18th, 1861

To day I went to Crockett in company with Charley Lund to whom I loaned my horse Hawk to return to Liberty. The District Court of Houston County commenced its session. I am compelled to dance attendance on said Court during the whole term I fear. Father [Joshua James Hall] led my horse home in the evening. weather cloudy and unpleasant.
