To day I remained at home in consequence of my Cold, Cough and sore throat which does not seem to improve any. Frank [Stewart] & Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] & Fannie are all sick. The Steamers Indian No. 2 and Col. Stell arrived at Walnut bluff from Galveston. Weather cloudy and cold with drizzling rain.
