Monday the 8d very fine weather, finished the fence eta round
Horse lot, worked a little in the garden and showed Tom what to
be done during my absence, M. B. Erwin arrived to day from

Tuesday the .th left home for Leon County on business of
Judge Taylor's Crossed the Angelina at David Rusk's ferry, and
stopped all night at John Hearn's in Cherokee County.
Wednesday March the 5th 1851 Left after Breakfeast, to Rusk

from wild woods to a fine village in 4 or 5 years, left at 3 P. M.

Thursday the 6th rained tremendously all night, and did not
stopp till 12 oclock today, left after dinner and crossed the
Nechaz at Cannon's Ferry, and had to stopp at Ben Cannon's on
account of a Creek which was overflowed.
Friday the 7th left after Breakfeast crossed the swollen creek

Town and improving very fast, went to Magnolia on the Trinity
stopped all night, this place is also new, it is the present head
of navigation of Trinity and is an Exelent place for a large busi-

point on the River, such, as Shrevesport is on the Red River, but
it is very sickly, and for that reason would not like to reside
here with my family; stopped with Mr Hagood.
