Wednesday, Feb. 26

A dark gloomy day.  Sister Sarah seems much depressed   --   no wonder.  [ The following lines were left out of the typescript by Mary Dawes Beach:  Mr. D. doing all he can to injure her and both her boys in the army and liable any day to fall on the battlefield; but we trust in God & He will not make us ashamed of our hope.]  The rebel prisoners are being sent to St. Louis, Indianapolis Chicago, Columbus, &c.  Our wounded are also being sent to Cincinnati and other places.  The Sanitary Commission are doing a good work in caring for them.

Peggy's comments:
Julia continues to comment on the bitterness between her sister Sarah Cutler Dawes and Henry Dawes, from whom Sarah had been separated for 22 years.
