Diary and Letters of Rutherford Birchard Hayes

Columbus, February 29, 1864.

Dear Mother: — We are having a pleasant visit. The new Mrs. Platt we like well. Her presence will be a good thing for the little folks and Laura receives and treats her in a very sensible and happy way.

I go to Cincinnati tomorrow or day after, and early next week leave for the Kanawha.



Mrs. Sophia Hayes.
