August 20th [1864]

Since I last wrote, our dear Mary Eliza has again left for school. She is now at Hillsboro, under the care of the Misses Nash, Ladies of the highest character, both for accomplishments & piety. I trust the sojourn there of my darling child may be blessed to her best interests. Our boys have had a happy vacation and returned to Smithville to school. My dear friend Eliza Smith spent this week with me. It is still a good pleasure for us to meet. We have indeed “lived and loved together, through many a changing year!”
