To day the boys are busy in repairing a rent in the levee. Sam* Sharp ground 11½ bushels of corn by way of assisting to run off the water which is very high and I am fearful that the levee will be swept away. weather cloudy and rainy. In fact it rained incessantly throughout the entire day raising the Elk Hart about as high as I ever saw it before. It also rained all night and the water is fearfully high, requiring the attention of all hands to save the mill levee. Massaline who run away is I learn in jail at Crockett.
