[from the diary of Matthella Page Harrison as transcribed at a later date]
Wednesday, January 28th - Found the ground covered with snow this morning. Little
Pollie Cary is quite sick. I am very uneasy about her. This is the deepest snow
we have had for years. I fear the poor soldiers will have a miserable time.
Poor brother Archie. God in his mercy watch over him and keep him well in soul
