Madison County. Tuesday January 17th. 1854.
This morning it is raining, last night it rained heavily and the road from here to the place where we hold Court is all mud. How unpleasant such a day at such a place.
The day has been verry unpleasant and the drinking population seemed to enjoy it to the fill. Drinking has increased about 20 pr. centum today over yesterday.
