Friday, November 24th, 1865

To day I am still at work at the warehouse. Frank [Stewart] and Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] are about as well as their diseases will admitt of. Col. Wrigley arrived in the cars from Houston. The Steamer Mary Hill on her upward bound trip struck a snag in demijohn bend and sunk, she will prove a total loss with every thing on board. Passengers and crew all safe. Weather variable and warm.
