To day the Steamer Ruthven arrived from & departed for Galveston, bringing but little freight. Business very dull. I whipped James Wrigley's negro man Sam in the Ware house for running away. weather changeable and hot but rather cool at night.

To day I left Grand Cane and rode 23 miles through the hardest rain I think I ever rode in before, reaching Liberty about 3 o'clock. Here I found James Wrigley's family all sick. Sam & his wife on the sick list also. Charley Lund & Ed Jones the only ones able to attend to business. Business however very dull.

To day we left Alderman's in the same line of travel as yesterday and arrived at Livingston 12 miles & there stoped for dinner. Dan Dailey & Dr. Storie remained in Livingston. I proceeded on my journey & rode 17 miles. Stopping for the night with John Carr. weather changeable and showery. at night there was an exceeding hard rain which lasted about 3 hours. Here I suffered severely from the fleas & bed bugs. In fact I got no rest throughout the night. expenses of $2.25.
