Saturday 27th [August 1864]
I have odds & ends as is my usual Saturday’s work. Charnes Scaife & a Henderson dined here today. I have not seen Charnes before in twelve or fourteen years. He resembles his father a great deal. Henderson is a stranger to me. Pinck slipped off to town with Lonzo this evening. He was very dirty. I did not know he was gone till he came back. Mr. Henry sent Lonzo after the mail.
