Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - July 14, 1861

Sunday 14th [July 1861]

Papa seems to think there is danger of our furniture, books &c. in Washington being confiscated by the Government. I have written to Mother to claim as her own what ever she can accommodate at her house. It will be hard for us to begin the world again without any thing.
