To day the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] and children drove out in the buggy in company with a party of ladies and gentlemen on a chinquipen hunt. I spent all the evening at the warehouse assisting James Wrigley in marking and weighing cotton. I purchased from Mr. Lindsey one bushel of peanuts for which I paid him two dollars. Weather variable and warm with occasional light showers of rain and a very hard rain at night.
