Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - October 16, 1861

Wednesday [16 October 1861]

Little Lewis died Sunday night.

No tidings from Cousin Jack yet. I fear very much that he is on a spree, and that his expedition has failed.

Capt Hollins has sunk the Vincennes at the mouth of the Mississippi, and driven others of the blockading squadron away.
