1863 January 17 [Clarke County, Va.]

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

Saturday, January 17th - A bright but intensely cold day.  Cousins Mary, Evelyn,
Nat Burwell, Frank Meade, John and Lucy Page dined here.  So many are gone away.
Those that are left have to unite more closely.  250 Yankees came down into the
neighborhood of Longwood for our men who were here yesterday.
