Saturday, March 15, 1862

Our lost bundle was received this morning.  It was found in the Parkersburg Depot by the baggage master.  Today we invited some of our neighbors to come to help us sew for the hospitals.  It has proved a rainy day; but Mrs. B. C. Bailey and daughter, Mrs. Chas. Dickey, Mrs. Reid, Misses E. Deming and Mary Deming, Mrs. Burgess, Maggie Voris, Miss Betsey Bailey, Mrs. W. D. Bailey were here.  They sewed very industriously and accomplished a great deal.  They are making neat dressing gowns, shirts and drawers.  Bedding has also been contributed.  There has been a very severe battle in New Mexico near Fort Craig.  Our men fought with desparate bravery.
