1862 November 13 "Hopedale," Albemarle County, Va.

[from the diary of Mary S. Boydon of "Hopedale," Abemarle County, Va.]

Nov 13.  My parents went over to Staunton to stay
till Saturday--It is a sad errand for my poor
Mother--Her attachment to her dear parent
seems to have lost none of its tenderness or
force -- Letter from Hanson He is still at
Beryville Clarke county.  O Lord pity my
hard heart!

Precept-"Oh sing unto the Lord; sing praises
unto his name."--Ps 68:4
Prayer-"Let God arise & let his Enemies be
scattered-Ps. 68:1
Promise-He is father of the fatherless, & speak
not with a stiff neck."  Ps. 75:6.

MSS 4208
