To day I am still in Galveston and at the Washington Hotel. The Str. Indian No. 2 arrived from Liberty with Capt. John W. Redmond on board as a passenger who left my house yesterday. I received a letter from the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] ordering some other things and in consequence of which I had to turn out and purchase them. I drove out on the beach with Dr. Stanwood. My cough is much improved. Weather variable & cool.
