1863 January 4 "Hopedale," Albemarle County, Va.

[from the diary of Mary S. Boyden, daughter of the Reverend Ebenzer Boyden, rector of Walker's Church, Cismont]

Sunday 4th  Father got a present of about
$300 from his parishioners at the Green Spring
besides two barrels of flour.  He has bought
three Confederate bonds of $500 each which he
gives to Lilla & Fanny & myself.  How very
gracious God is to us!  May we be suitably
