Saturday, August 5th, 1865

To day the Steamer Lone Star arrived from Galveston with 3 companies of Federal soldiers on board. The infernal rascals as soon as they landed commenced plundering through the premises of all the citizens who lived in their route ? &c. They were very ? and rude. I drove up town in company with ? in hopes of seeing the Federals leave. one company left on ? others came in their place. The Lone Star left in the evening for Galveston and thank God one of the companies named above left on her. Fannie & ? were again taken sick with fever. Weather variable and hot with a light shower of rain. Ther: 84°.
