Friday, March 28, 1862

Still very pleasant.  The state of the roads has been so bad that for weeks it has been rare to see anyone passing.  Yesterday and today they have dried fast and riders are seen again.  Worked all day in the garden and am very tired.  Fixed up my tulip beds.  Kate has been transplanting to the new borders.  John has put seeds into the hot-bed, and sowed some lettuce, onions, &c, and planted a few potatoes.  A. S. Bailey called and left an Athens Messenger containing his criticisms of Mr. Horton's late speech in Congress.  I am sorry to learn that Cousin Mary Parker Bartlett has lost her eldest daughter, Mary B. Cooley.
