Monday 15[th September 1862]
We were all together once more for a few days last week -- all but my dear Johnny. He is in Tupello with cousin Dabney.
Papa and Matsy left this morning for Richmond. They expect to sail for England in a week or ten days. Papa is not ordered on any very important duty.
I am afraid Will will not be able to resume his duties as Receiver here. This part of the country is in too unsettled a state now.
