Friday, November 8th, 1861


To day the Steamer Ruthven arrived from Galveston with considerable freight. she departed in the evening and I let Bob go on her as a hand for one trip. Lieut. Sterling of the Guards & Capt. Bolling of the Rifles came up on the Steamer. Business pretty brisk. The boys still at work with the potatoes. Nothing doing on my house. weather changeable and warm.

150 years ago today . . . on this date in 1861 . . . the USS San Jacinto stops the United Kingdom mail ship Trent and arrests two Confederate envoys, sparking a diplomatic crisis between the UK and US.
