To day the boys are still at work putting up the cotton house. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 3 bushels of corn. I rode my horse Ratler to Crockett & back in order to get released from Conscription, but did not succeed. In consequence of which I got on a slight bender. Clara & Carroll are still quite sick. While in Crockett I received from Mr. J.C. Miller the sum of $60. for two pairs of Wool cards. weather clear & very hot.
