[from the diary of Anne Madison Willis Ambler]
Monday, December 1, 1862
Accomplished as little as I usually
do on Monday, though I rose very early &
kindled my own fire & had all
my little ones dressed in time to read
a little before breakfast--
Was washing Mr. Amblers inkstand &
broke the tube. Am so sorry--I have enjoyed
using it so much & loved to have it
for his sake=It is ever thus . - . .
Feel low spirited: There are many
many reasons for it.
