Monday, Sept. 8, 1862

Mrs. Terrill washed.  William has gone out to Chillicothe.  The rebels have crossed the Potomac, have taken Frederick, Maryland, and are threatening the Pennsylvania border and Baltimore.  Pope has resigned and is transferred to the Northwest to look after the Sioux and M'Clellan is again in command.  It is disheartening but we must submit.  "They are the sword, the hand is thine."Oh, that patriotism and faith in God may not die out of the national heart. 
Lizzie and I went to eat melons at Mr. Lyman Hart's. The report of the loss of Mr. Johnson's horses by guerrillas is untrue.  They were pressed into Government service to do picket duty.
