To day Capt. Peacock & I left Liberty on the Steamer Mary Hill for Galveston. we had a pleasant run down the river & across the bay, and arrived at Galveston at 1. o'clock at night. at home the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] let Mr. Monroe have 2 bales of cotton. one weighed 486 lbs & the other 513 pounds. Hicks ground 42 bushels of corn. Weather clear & pleasant.
