1863 January 28 [Clarke County, Va.?]

[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
and body.
