The Jefferson Jimplecute says:
The River, Weather and Crops--
The water continues to fall here about four inches every twenty-four hours, but it will take it two months to get too low for navigation. Weather still cloudy with frequent showers. The corn crops have come out 50 per cent since the rains commenced, and cotton is "spreading itself."
