To day I am at work at the warehouse. Hicks & Steve are still hauling salt & finished removing the same. The steamer Indian No. 2 arrived from Galveston bound up the [Trinity] river, after taking on board 100 sacks salt, she proceeded on her voyage. Jimmy [James Wrigley Hall] & I are still sorely afflicted with the itch. As this is the first day of summer I begin to note the state of the thermometer as I have heretofore kept it. Ed. Jones arrived from Galveston on the steamer Indian No. 2. Weather variable and hot: Ther: 86°.
