The Journal of Julia LeGrand

February 19th [1863]. Mrs. Waugh came in while I was doing up my collars. She read us Davis’ book while I was busy. She is so simpleminded and true that I should not blush if she visited me, and I had only a crust to offer her. The exchanged prisoners go out tomorrow. A great many are going to see them off. Report says that the Laurel Hill, the boat on which they were to be sent, is captured by our people up the river.
