Thursday, Dec. 11, 1862

Today the circle met at Mrs. Hart's. Quite a large number were present.  Mr. Curtis was there.  The entertainment was abundant and very nice.  The weather is delightful, frosty nights and mild sunny days.
Our circle was instituted with a two fold aim.  First to aid our soldiers in such manner as may be practicable or to promote any other benevolent object.  Second, to promote social intercourse.  We meet once in two weeks on Thursday afternoon and work for the soldiers paying quarterly at the rate of one cent a week.  Each family take with them cake, canned fruit or whatever they please as their contribution to the supper.
