To day the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] missed her fever, but she has a very sore mouth, so has Florence. Conney missed her fever. I purchased from Mr. Jackson 14 lbs of beef and 5 chickens all on a credit. The Yankee troops which had been stationed here all left on the cars in route for Houston, and I sincerely hope no more will be stationed here. I spent the most of the day down at the ware house. Weather variable and hot. Ther: 96°.
