[from the diary of Mary S. Boyden, daughter of the Rev. Ebenezer Boyden, Rector of Walker's Church, Cismont, Va.]
Saturday 8th, A sleety, dreadful day - But sent
the carriage for Ma - She came & Father had a
terrible headache - They had a delightful little
visit. Hanson was looking & doing very well
-O that peace would come! May God hasten
it in his own good time!
D. Hanson Boyden was serving with the Charlottesville Artillery (Carrington's Company of the Virginia Light Artillery)
