To day the Steamer Ruthven arrived from Galveston. I received by her an excellent barrel of oysters. The Liberty Guards had a re-organization and new election of officers, which resulted as follows: James Wrigley Capt. Joseph N. Park 1st Lieut. B.F. Sterling ? 2nd Lieut & B. Hardin, Jr. 2nd Lieut. after which they left on the Ruthven for Galveston, to commence their services in the army. Business tolerable. nothing doing on my house. weather cloudy with drizzling rain & strong wind from the North & pretty cool.
