Tuesday 26th [July 1864]
I have been quite unwell all day, a dull headache. Mr. Henry went to town since dinner.l We had eat supper when he got home. He got a furlough for ten days. I am so sorry he has to go out again. I do hope no ill will befall him. I have done nothing but knit today. Matt finished a shirt for Sam today, began it yesterday.
