To day I am still at work at the Ware house. I drove up town and got the little woman's [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] bonnet, hat, &c, which had been sent over from Houston, & I find I owe a balance of $5.50 on the bills of purchase. Mrs. Beale* [Elizabeth Lemaire Beale nee Waring] & family are still here. Ed. Jones arrived from the up Country. Frank [Stewart] still very sick. All still have the itch. Weather . . .
*This Mrs. Beale is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
