1862 November 9 Lynchburg, Va.

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

Sunday 9. Fine day--Large congrega-
tion--Mr. Kinckle very hoarse &
unable to preach at night.
Mr. Macon who has been here
since 24 ult left left us in the
S.S. cars this afternoon for home
having been examined by the medi
-cal Board & been furloughed on
account of his health. He started
too late & was unable to get his
baggage on board which was
brought back--went to Sues and
spent an hour--at night with
Eugene D went to 4th Street Metho
dist church and heard a very
[?] feeble tedious sermon from
a Protestant Methodist whose name
I did not learn.
