Saturday, April 14th, 1866

To day I am still at work at the ware house. The Steamer Indian No. 2 came down the river loaded with cotton, and landed with the other boats above the raft. The Steamers Emery and Royal Arch arrived from Galveston with some freight. Roberta [Downes Halyard nee Hall] and Florence [Mahala Hall] are suffering severely with colds and cough. Weather cloudy & cool with occasional showers of rain.
