To day I am still at the Crawford house in Galveston. I got all my purchases ready to ship by first steamer to Liberty. L.E. Downes is at work purchasing for the Crockett market and I wrote by him to Sam* H. Sharp in relation to my up Country [Houston County] business. Dr. Stanwood & I drove out on the beach and spent a pleasant afternoon. Weather clear and pleasant.
