The water is drying up a little from the face of the earth. The Elk Hart is falling a little and I now think the mill levee is safe against this last freshet. Sam* Sharp rode Rob to Crockett after Massaline who was there in jail and while in Crockett Sam sold the boy Massoline to Mr. Arrington for the sum of $1500. weather clear and a little cool.
