8th. A beautiful day & a happy one to me. We are all going along in excellent temper & good discipline my last rebel (Mr Schreyvogel) this morning came & asked my pardon & requested I would allow him to resume his duties. I did so immediately, & fancy that I shall not in a hurry have any of them attempt to play the same pranks. I have been severely tried for the last 6 weeks but thank God that I have been sustained & that I have good reason to suppose peace & good order is now permanently established. To day we finished the store for the “Pirie’s” Cargo & I gave directions for the erection of a similar one to receive the Cargo of the “Emma” & the turning my first well into a Magazine for Gunpowder.
