To day I am at work at the Warehouse. The steamer Ruthven arrived from Galveston bound up the [Trinity] river. she discharged a little freight. In the evening I drove up town and had my throat carterized or burnt with caustic. Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall] had a fever. the rest of the children are well. Capt. John Redmond is at work painting my house. Weather variable and warm.
