1862 November 20 "Hopedale," Albemarle County, Va.

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

Wednesday 20   Letter from Staunton saying that Ma
will come on Saturday next.  Note from poor
Mrs Watkins asking father to come down tomorrow
& bury her little daughter Florence who died from
the effects of measles.  So much distress & grief in
the world!

come unto thee"  Ps.101:1
