Thursday, October 26th, 1865

To day we left Walnut bluff on the Steamer Kate in route for Galveston and had a pleasant run down to the mouth of the river but vessel got aground in the canal and the steamer Ruthven coming along side of our boat we left the Kate and took passage on the Ruthven for Galveston. we were compelled however to lay at the mouth of the river all night. Weather clear and pleasant until night, when a severe norther came out rendering it very cold.
