Monday, 10th December, 1866

Quite a pretty day. Pigeo and Nan went on horseback to call on Nannie Lewis. Came by the store. Made some purchases and home to dinner. Mrs. Lewis’ family will spend the day with me on Monday next. – – By agreement, they will spend again the evening at Enfield and call on Mrs. Harrison, who has recently moved to the neighborhood.1 They returned at dark, much pleased to make her acquaintance. Patsy has been drying a little blk. yarn for stockings, but says the weather is too cold and unruly for it.

  1. Mrs. Harrison, formerly Ann (Nanny) Cooke, is the widow of Capt. John Poe Harrison who died in October, 1861 of typhoid fever contracted while stationed on active duty. They had three daughters, Ann Poe, Edmonia Churchill, and Susie R. Harrison.  (back)
