1863 January 19 [Clarke County, Va.]

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

Monday, January 19th -- Bright and cold.  Cousins Mary and Evelyn went with me to
see Mary Helm at Mr. Calmes.  We returned and dined at Longwood.  There is a re-
port today of Jackson's death.  I trust God will not so afflict our cause.
