1863 January 1 [Clarke County?] Va.

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

Thursday, January 1, 1863 - A damp, dismal, snowy day.  Cousin John was here in the morning.  Col. Rosser of Stuart's Cavalry and thirty men are in Millwood.  They reported three brigades had crossed at Snigger's Ferry so I  hoe the reign of the Yankees is short.]
