To day the Steamer Ruthven left for Galveston and Mrs. Wrigley and her children also left on her to spend Christmas with her relatives in Houston. Sam H. Sharp* and Frank Stewart whom I paid off and discharged from my service left for my mill up the Country [to Houston County] in my little wagon. I am busy in the ware house. weather changeable and cold, with a hard frost at night.
