Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - August 22, 1861

Thursday [22 August 1861]

Was busy yesterday copying for Pa, and making a shirt for a soldier at the hospital.

Hear yesterday that McClelland has put ten thousand men along the Maryland bank of the Potomac to prevent any more passing across the river. Good bye to my trunk. I never expect to see it now.
