Tuesday, Dec. 23, 1862

Kate went to Marietta and returned this evening.  Seward and Chase have withdrawn their resignations and for the present cabinet difficulties are bridged over.  Lizzie and I went up to see Mrs. Burgess.  She is better.

Peggy's Comments:
Abraham Lincoln wrote to Seward and Chase (Secretaries of State and Treasury) and refused to accept their resignations.  See his letter here.
