Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - August 13, 1861

Tuesday 13th [August 1861]

Mrs Parker arrived here last night. She is on her way to Richmond to see her daughter Georgia. She left Washington Friday came across the Potomac in an open boat at night. I have invited her to dine here to day. Oh! me. I wish the day was over.
