Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - August 29, 1861

Thursday 30th [sic, August 1861]

Raining hard all day. Nanny Belle and I spent the day at uncle John’s. They were much surprised to see us in such weather but I was too lonesome to stand it down here any longer. On my way home saw two sick soldiers in an old carriage house lying on the floor. I sent them some tea and bread.

Heard yesterday that Mrs Phillips Mrs Givin and Mrs Greenhow of Washington were arrested.
