1862 January 3 [Clarke County?, Va.]

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

Saturday, January 3rd - Another bright day.  Uneventful.  Read French with Maria
in the morning.  A reported victory at Port Royal.  The Yankees have granted us gracious permission to trade with their soldiers so I hope to have groceries soon.  I suppose their stock of flour is low, not their philanthropy warmer.
