Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - November 1, 1861

Friday - November 1st [1861]

Our Commissioners to England and France Mr. Mason and Mr. Slidell have sailed in a British steamer from Cuba. They ran the blockade at Charleston some weeks ago.

A most formidable Yankee fleet left Hampton Roads last Tuesday.

We feel very anxious about it.
