[from the diary of William M. Blackford, bank officer and former diplomat with five sons in the Confederate Army]

Thursday 13
[first half of this entry missing]

moval will cause great disgust in
the army & tend to demoralise it
whilst the Democratic party will
take to heart as a blow aimed at them
The deep damnation of his taking off
Lord Lyons has arrived in Wash-
ington and the rumor is that he
is about to visit Washington Richmond
Lancelot Minor came in the evening
and staid all night --Eugene, I
forgot to mention,went to Careyswood
Wednesday morg--If he finds he can
stand riding he will go next week
to rejoin his regiment.
