To day I went up town to act as Commissioner on the partition and distribution of the estate of Williams decd. amongst the heirs thereof. In the evening be it remembered! That I moved the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], Fawn, bag & baggage into the new house in order that I could have a home of my own although it is yet in a half finished condition, but we can get along in it until I can have it completed. weather clear & warm with a shower of rain at night.
