Tuesday 16th [February 1864]
I spent the day at Capt. Moore’s. Daniel Moore has been very low with typhoid fever but some better now. I wrote to Mr. Henry from there by request of Dr. Neilson as he wanted Mr. Henry to bring up a horse his brother Charlie has at Pa’s. I would be so glad to see Pinck & Zona & Willie would be delighted. Zona & I were very cold this evening when we got home as the wind was very high. There has been some drunken soldiers here today, vomited on the floor in my room & stole Matt’s comb. She just got it yesterday by Vic. He got in Greenville at four dollars.
