To day I drew off 15 doz. [bottles] of brandy and bottled it up for sale. I also went to the City and arbitrated the case of Stanwood & Fatheree vs. Kellum. gave an award in favor of the plaintiffs for $543.50 in this case. James Wrigley was associated with me as an arbitrator. weather changable & rather warm.

To day I went to the city to arbitrate a matter in controversy between Kellum & Stanwood. I also received a fine barrel of oysters from Galveston on the steamer, which I eat (at least my share) with great gusto. weather cloudy & rather cool.

To day the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] in company with several ladies, went in hunt of black berries. She & Mrs. John Wrigley walk over the railroad bridge, which is a considerable undertaking for a lady. I took a strole in their company on the other side of the [Trinity] river from Liberty. we met with poor success in getting berries however. weather changable & rather cool.

To day we are engaged in the store, but I am sorry to say, but little doing. I sent to Galveston for one barrel of fresh oysters, but on the return of the Steamer was disappointed. weather clear & rather cool.
