To day I am still at work at the store house. I drove up town and waited until the [rail]cars came in from Houston, by them I received several Articles for Mrs. Beale* [Elizabeth Lemaire Beale nee Waring]. Col. Wrigley still confined. Frank [Stewart] is still improving slowly. Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall] missed the chill and fever. Weather cloudy & cold with occasional showers of rain.
*This Mrs. Beale is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
