Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - August 6, 1861

Tuesday 6th [August 1861]

Will left for Raleigh this morning.

Papa sent us a copy of his peace proposition. I did not altogether like it. But it is only a rough draft that is to be sent to the Vice President.

Wrote a long letter to Maria Hasbrouck. Told her a few facts and truths that she would never hear from the Northern papers.

No news from the armies.
