To day I rode my horse Gladiator to Crockett & while there paid Mr. Corley for 34 bales of cotton. I also settled with W.P. Leaverton for his attention to my business. one of my steers got out of the lot and one of the boys lost the entire day looking for him without success. The other boys are still at work on the garden posts. Sam* Sharp ground 20 bushels of corn. I returned home from Crockett in the evening. weather clear & cold with a frost & freeze at night.
*This Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog.
