Saturday, 19 November, 1864

A close, rainy day. The girls confined themselves pretty much to the parlor playing and singing. Ju and the Col. came about 10 or 11 and spent the day. The former left about sunset. I think we have the most delightful music tonight by the Col., Bake and Nan I ever listened to. He played unusually well on his flute. – – The children were very much in the humor for playing. – – Gave Parky the day. Patsy cooked. Bill and his Uncle Billy arrived from Richmond at 1 o’clk. tonight through the rain.
