To day I am still at work at the warehouse. Hicks hauling for Mr. Wrigley, he also made another load for Mrs. Beale* [Elizabeth Lemaire Beale nee Waring]. I drove up town and finished trying the negroes. One of them I discharged and the other I held to bail to answer the offence at the District Court. We received by express $15,000. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] drove up town and purchased a few articles for the children. Weather cloudy and cold.
*This Mrs. Beale is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
