Monday, January 29th, 1866

To day I am at work at the Warehouse. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] drove out after Mrs. Masie, who came home with her, and commenced sewing at 6 bits per day. Hicks & Albert hauled pickets all day for Mrs. Beale* [Elizabeth Lemaire Beale nee Waring]. Col. Wrigley commenced moving the Smith house to a new location in order to convert it into a school house. The sloop Gray Hound arrived from Galveston with some freight on board. Weather clear and pleasant.

*Mrs. Beale is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
