Monday 7th March 1864
I have mended up some burnt holes in my homespun dresses today & some other odds & ends. Cousin William went to Asheville this morning, did not get back till after dinner. Matt got dinner & supper as Atheline is sick. Mr. Henry went to hunt some of his men today. He will not be back before tomorrow. The mail brought no news of importance. Pleasant today.
