Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - April 27, 1862

Sunday 27th [April 1862]

Our pickets have succeeded in getting of a large quantity of their stores from here.

Received a budget of letters from the dear ones in Richmond to day.

We hear that the Yankees have set a strong guard at the Depot to night. “They have locked the stable door after the horse has gone.” Our pickets got off a loaded freight train last night.
