Monday, Aug. 4, 1862

Sarah and Lucy came down today.  Lucy is preparing to start to Illinois in the morning unless we get some favorable news from Clara.  We hope for a dispatch today.  Mr. D. B. Nott, the Bible Agent was here to tea.  He gave us some interesting and amusing details of his experience as a colporteur in Wood Co. Virginia, where he distributed the publications of the American Tract Society.

Peggy's comments:
A colporteur is a pedlar of devotional literature.
