Sunday, April 8th, 1866

To day I was compelled to work at the warehouse storing hides. The raft formed above the railroad bridge so great as to entirely shut up all navigation of the [Trinity] river. The little woman* spent the evening at Mrs. Beale's** and Lucy*** came home with her & spent the night. Roberta**** is still improving in health. Weather clear and cold with a light frost at night.
