August 13th [1864]

I’m much better today. It is a bright morning and very warm. I expect to hear from Edwin this afternoon, as I look for his father to return. Mr. Fuller has come and brought pleasing accounts from Edwin.

** Edwin left on the 10th to go to Chapel Hill for college.

I’m in bed this morning but feeling better. Oh, how I do miss Edwin. I often listen for his footstep and merry whistle. It is hard to realize that he has left me for so long a time.

August 10th [1864]

A day to be remembered for being the one our darling boy left his home, not again to enter it as a child. He started this afternoon for Chapel Hill.  How sad I feel and how I shall miss him. It is the first time that he has ever left me for any length of time, and then I know he goes into scenes of novelty, temptation and trial that he has never known before; that he is a Christian and knows where to look for strength to resist evil. Oh God, be thou near him when danger is nigh.

Bought four and one half dozen eggs, $2 per dozen. We had frost this morning, and the two previous morning, but I hope it has not injured the young, tender plants. Vegetation of every kind is backward. Opened a barrel of flour.

April 27th [1864]

Estelle and Livit Lovelace were married last night at Sister Margaret’s at nine o’clock and left a little after ten o’clock for the railroad on route for Alabama. I felt very sad at parting with her, for we know what awaits her. Her husband is in the Army and may soon fall, a martyr to his country. God grant to spare his life and make them happy. She was indeed a lovely bride.

April 18th [1864]

I am very unwell this morning, but able to be up. I am all alone. My children have gone about eight miles in the country to see a cavalry regiment on dress parade. It is too cloudy and cold, but many of their companions were going and of course they wanted to, too. They little know the anxiety their mother feels about them, particularly our little Annie. She is a delicate child, so good and kind. Our boy is all we could ask him to be; noble and generous and endowed with more than ordinary intellect. They are Christians, too, both of them. Ought I not to walk humbly and thankfully before the Lord every day for giving me so many blessings.

Sabbath quite cold. Vegetation is very backwards. The buds of the forest trees are scarcely swollen. The scarcity provision of all kinds is alarming. Corn is selling at $230 per bushel, butter at $5, bacon at $7 to $8 per lb. I was not able to attend church today because of a severe cold. My throat and chest are very sore.
