Letters and diary of Laura M. Towne

[Diary] Saturday, February 27,1864.

I was in the midst of baking to-day when Mr. Saxton and Louise Kellogg came in. Mr. Saxton came to make the welcome announcement that a homoeopathic physician had come down and is to be established on Ladies Island. I am too glad. No more such heavy responsibility for me, no more looking around for help and finding none, no more fear of getting poisoned if I get ill. It is happiness and safety combined.
