Thursday, Aug. 21, 1862

Miss Cone left this morning.  The road is still crowded with people going to visit the 36th, carrying apples, peaches, melons, &c to brothers and sons.  It is quite an ovation.  It shows of what material our army is made and how great the sacrifice has been.
We started to attend "circle" at Loring Lewis'.   Mrs. Dawes, Maggie, Lizzie and I.  We broke our buggy near Mr. Brigg's, Mrs. Dawes returned home.  The rest walked to Mr. Lewis'.  We had a pleasant time.  Rode home in Mr. Bailey's express.  Miss Temple spent the afternoon with Kate and Lucy.
