1862 November 16 "Hopedale," Albemarle County, Va.

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

Saturday. Awoke this morning with sore throat
& headache--Fit for little all day--Father made
two kettles of applebutter -& between us we knit
Hanson a pair of gloves

Precept-"Sing we merrily unto God our strength;
Make a cheerful noise unto the God of Jacob"--Ps 81:1

Prayer-"Turn thee again, thou God of hosts; look
down, behold & visit this vine, & the place of the
vineyard that thy right hand has planated, and
the branch that thou madest so strong for
thyself"  Ps.80:14, 15

Promise-The Lord shall show loving kindness, &
our land shall give her increase."  Ps. 85:12
