To day I am at work at the warehouse. Col. Wrigley, Mrs. Gayle and Ida all left on the cars for Houston. Capt. John W. Redmond commenced to paint my house. The Str. Ruthven came down the [Trinity] river, and after repairing her wheel left for Galveston. Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall], Josephine [Martha Hall] & Conney are still recovering from the measles. Roberta [Downes Halyard nee Hall] & Florence [Mahala Hall] are now well. I am suffering with the itch. Weather cloudy and warm.
