Wednesday, March 12, 1862

Kate has gone to Tunnel station to purchase materials for making a box of clothing to be sent to the Sanitary Commission at Cincinnati.  Nancy rode out Dolly to attend a school examination near Tunnel station.  Kate is coming home on horse back and Nancy will come in the evening train bringing the purchases.  Mrs. Terril here ironing.  No Gazette tonight.  We can scarcely do without it.  We want to hear what has been done on the Potomac, and what is doing out west.  War is a terrible reality to those whose dearest friends are in the army.  God pity us and send peace and prosperity.
