Thursday, April 17th, 1862

To day Capt. James Wrigley arrived home on the Steamer Ruthven, looking quite well. Sam Sharp*, the little woman, Nellie*, Mrs. Lund, Miss Lizzie Robinson, Charley Lund and myself went out to gum lake on a fishing excursion and caught quite a nice mess, which we enjoyed in the woods with considerable gusto, indeed we passed a pleasant day and all appeared to enjoy themselves hugely. Boys at work on the fence. weather cloudy and rather warm. [*This Sam and Nellie are 2nd great-grandparents of the Keeper of this family history blog.]
