1863 January 29 [Clarke County, Va.]

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

Thursday, January 29th - A bright but blustering day with a deep snow on the ground.
I paid off some of me correspondence today.  It has been very quiet but
pleasant.  I made my potichomania jar, painted, read and did various little jobs.

Potichomania: 19th century hobby of decorating glass to resemble porcelain
