1862 November 27 "Hopedale," Albemarle County, Va.

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

 Thursday 27th  Mr.
Hunt Powell & two other soldiers called here
today.  Mr P. was very polite, but the other
two certainly were not gentlemen. One was
Nat McGhee, brother of Frank, whom I had
known while at Mr Colston's.  But I never
should have recognized him.  I am afraid
he thought I wished to cut him--the other
young man was a Mr Harrison-a very dis=
=gusting person-I fancied Mr. Powell msh
was ashamed of his friends-

Precept-" Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of
you an evil hear of unbelief, in departing from
the living God"--Heb 3:12

Prayer- "Lord what wilt thou have me to do?"- Acts 9:6

Promise-"The Lord shall preserve thee from all Evil ." 

MSS 4208
