Tuesday, Sept. 13. 1864

Mr. Burgess came down this morning and as there was no Gazette in consequence of the failure of the mail last night, he was disappointed of his usual regalement of news, and of course very cross.
I sent up the carriage for Mrs. Cutler who came home before dinner -- she is better today.
