1863 January 2 [Clarke County, Va.]

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

Friday, January 2nd- A bright, not very cold day.  Maria Meade came over in the morning and we read "Corrine".  Then Cousin John came and a little later cousin Lucy, Evelyn Page and the children.   In the evening I went to Linden and stayed to tea.  Cousin Mary and William going to Georgia on Monday week.  What a pleasant prospect for them, dismal for me who stay behind.  No news of our people or the Yankees.
