To day Capt Peacock and Solomon Levy left on their buggy for Magnolia. The boys are still engaged in getting out and hauling garden posts. I ground 23½ bushels of corn. I received from Jesse Tubbs two loads of lint cotton, making the amount received from him 5244 lbs and I paid his son young Jesse the sum of $700 on a/c of said cotton. at night there was a perfect storm the rain fell in torrents making the Elk Hart creek nearly over flow its banks. it was indeed a very disagreeable & unpleasant night.
