1862 December 25 [Clarke County, Va.]

[from the diary of Matthella Page Harrison as transcribed at a later date]

Christmas day, 1862
The most quiet one I ever spent.  Cousin John Page, Fez and myself dined here quietly.  No other visitors through the day.  No Yankees have yet appeared in our neighborhood, though said to be still in Winchester.
