To day I am engaged with 20 hands in removing the two cannons that arrived on yesterday from the cars to the steam boat landing. this was a pretty hard undertaking as we had no wagon to haul them but was compelled to rock? them on skids. as difficult as the undertaking was I however succeeded and placed safely on board the Steamer Ruthven to be carried to Galveston. weather clear with a slight frost at night.
