Thursday 14th [January 1864]
Jinnie scoured my room & Harrie’s room today. I worked Zona a night cap today with turkey red. It looks very nice. I hope to hear from Pinck by tomorrow’ mail. I would like so much to hear he was well & well satisfied. I hope Mr. Henry is well. May a kind Heaven protect him I pray.
