To day I went up town and thence down to the office at the river there I settled in full with Mr. Patillo for the work he done on my house. Mrs. Raschall & Mrs. Bitterman called on me for the purpose of getting me to intercede with Col. Gillespie to procure the discharge of Mr. Bitterman from the service. this I done of course for the accommadation [sic] of the ladies, but I can't say with what success. weather clear & cool.
