To day I am still at work at the warehouse and finished loading the propeller frate. In the evening Billy Stewart, Mr. Ballinger & I left my residence and drove down in my buggy to the steamer Kate and embarked on her for Galveston. Before leaving I hired a negro boy by the name of ? for two months for which I am to pay four dollars per Month. I also got from Mrs. Wrigley $150. We were compeled to remain on board of the Kate all night. The Capt. having refused to start until morning. Weather variable and cool.
