To day I am still in Galveston. I took dinner with my friend D. Wakelee and in the evening, Frank Hitchcock, David Wakelee, Burns & I chartered a hack and went down to Prince's establishment, where we had a regular jolification and spent a pleasant time. Upon our return we drove over to the gulf and had a regular sea bath which done me great good. I found however after I arrived in the City that I had forgotten my watch and had to employ a negro boy to go down the Island after, who returned in the night with my watch. thus passed one of the most pleasant days that I have had this summer. weather clear & very hot. Ther: 98°.
