Sunday, 28 May, 1865

Quite cool for the season. Bake and Nan, Lieut. Arledge and myself went in the carriage to Church. Zac drove and Hardie rode Fannie. We called by the Dr.’s to see little Louy, who is quite sick. Ju thinks there is but little hope of raising him. It generally proves fatal with his children when they teethe at this season.1 All of us returned home to dinner. – – After supper we had sacred music in the parlor. – – Pigeo has been complaining for a day or two.

  1. Contained in the lost King William Registers of Birth from 1863 through 1869 must have been the entry for yet another male child of Junius and Mag. As “Louy” is teething and his brother Stuart was born mid-September, 1862, it is likely Louy, probably named for his grandfather Lewis, was born in late 1863 or winter/spring 1864, shortly before Caroline began writing in the new volume of her Journal.  (back)
