Rose is in need of a new dress and I believe that the Irish Maid shop will be set up and open for business. I will trade in some of Rose's older clothing for credit toward the new dress. Rose is very excited. Giv'n the shoddy and threadbare nature of her current clothing, I too am excited.
After the Bledsoe fair, I will be traveling East again to Martin's Station to aid in the defense of the Station against the local savage. I have made arrangements to stay with Doc Muzzy in his tent. It is my sincere hope that the weather will be favorable whilst I am there, and I will be able to sleep in the fresh, open air. I will begin packing on Sunday evening for the journey.
