To day I am at work at the warehouse. The steamer Royal Arch discharging her cargo. The [Trinity] river is still falling. Fawn [Florence Mahala Hall] is still improving. Roberta [Downes Halyard nee Hall] has the measles broken out on her plentifully. Ed. Jones arrived from the up Country [Houston County]. Messrs. Marbert & Gregg commenced working on the gallery to my residence. Weather clear and warm.
