To day we left Livingston and drove 24 miles to Sumpter where we stopped for the night at Mr. Teagarden's hotel. this distance I drove suffering very severe pain and cramp in my bowels. we met 26 wagons in one train all loaded with cotton. they were from Louisiana and bound for Brownsville for army supplies. Expenses of the day 2$. weather clear & hot. Ther: 88°.
