To day I am at work at the warehouse loading the propeller Royal Arch. I sent forward to Frank Hitchcock 57 Bales of Cotton by the Royal Arch. The Steamers Shreveport & Indian No. 2 worked their way through the raft and bridge and left for Galveston. The Steamer Arizona arrived from Galveston and proceeded on up the river. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] is still doing her own housework. Pet [Florence Mahala Hall] is sick with fever. Weather clear & pleasant.
