Thursday June 6th 
Another rainy day and I have too bad a cold to go to the society.
Ellen Mercer came to see me this evening and Mrs. Hart and Sue Crutchfield. The latter is very pretty – is engaged to my brother Dick.
Johnny came this evening from the university. He expects to enter the military school there in a week or ten days.
Got a letter from Will. Says he cannot get back to Washington. Is going to Caroline to see Uncle Jourdan Woolfork for a few days.
Cousin Sally said family are boarding here at Uncle Brodie’s. Cousin Charles talks of going into the powder business in Richmond.
