Wednesday 23rd [July 1862]
Mr. Henry took Joyce home today, did not get back till dark. I have the headache very badly this evening. Willie is no better & very cross. I have a dreadful cold, I think from being up with him so much through the night. I finished Hanes’ apron this evening & sewed a little on Uncle Sam’s pants.
