Monday, May 25th, 1863

To day after bidding the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & babies and all others on the place "good bye" I left in company with Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] in the buggy drawn by my horse Rob in route for Liberty. we arrived in Crockett for dinner, and while there I collected from L.E. Downes $1200. I also received from him the further sum of $1500 to be invested for him in goods at Houston. After dinner we left Crockett on our journey and arrived at Daniel Dailey's where we stopped for the night having driven 15 miles from home. weather clear and rather hot.
