Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - August 18, 1861

Sunday 18th [August 1861]

Papa and Will came last night. The latter has had a charming visit in Raleigh.

We expect to break up here this week. Mama and the children are going to cousin Frank Minors. Nanny will return to Farley Vale, and I do not know where Will and I will go. He wants to get some business in Richmond if possible, something to support us this winter.

I have sent for my trunk from Washington. Wonder if I will get it safe. It is running a great risk. Have offered to pay twenty five dollars to get it here.
