Monday, June 1st, 1863

To day I am still in Houston and commenced making several little purchases for the various persons who sent by me for the same, and am very busy getting them together. Frank Hitchcock came down from Washington County to see me & with whom I spent a pleasant time. at night we visited the Theatre together. expenses of the day 15$. weather clear & very hot, as it is the first day of summer I shall commence keeping the stage of the Thermometer, which I contemplate keeping up throughout the entire summer. at 3 P.M. (and at this hour for the season I shall always note) it reached in the shade 90°.
