Diary of Ephraim Shelby Dodd, Co. D of Terry's Texas Rangers

Thursday, 10th—I went over to Whitehead’s to get some raw hide to cover my saddle. I stopped at Mr. Mobley’s and took dinner, chatted Miss Metta a while and went over to the Mill and on to the tan yard and back to the Mill; found Dr. Neely there. I staid till bout 10 o’clock and came back to Camp. Time passed pleasantly, “on Angels’ wings,” while with Miss Mag.
