Saturday, April 26, 1862

Clara has no school Saturdays so we visited vigoursly talking without limit.  She had been trying to get a girl without success, but a widow woman named Dunn from Ohio came wanting a home for the summer.  This is a great relief to Clara.  We all went to Mrs. Bradley's to tea where we met Mrs. Tyler who is Mr. Bradley's daughter, and Mrs. Bacon a bright, pleasant little lady, a Yankee originally but more recently a denizen of St. Louis where her husband was engaged in business when the war broke out.  He now culitvates a farm near Pana.  While we were away at Mrs. Bradley's, Mrs. Mills called on us.  We are all invited to Mr. Tyler's Tuesday.
