To day Billy Stewart and I drove down to Mothers [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and remained for dinner. I purchased from him negro woman America & her child Claudine for which I paid him ten bales of cotton. The creek is still very high. The levee is still in great danger and Hicks was compelled to run the mill and ground 15 bushels of corn. Weather cloudy and very cold.
