To day the boys went to the bluff [Hall's Bluff on the banks of the Trinity River] after my gun stand & centre table and returned with them all safe. Hicks went out in search of my horse Gladiator, but returned at night without finding him. I am busy arranging my desk and papers. Capt. Rose came in the evening and remained all night with me. weather cloudy & cold.
