Wednesday, May 13, 1863

Finished planting my flower beds.  It rained in the afternoon.  Mrs. Terril here ironing.  Lizzie not well today.
Hooker’s advance is contradicted.  Dix is going up the York river from Fortress Monroe, threatening Richmond.  Stoneman’s raid has astonished the rebels.  He traversed 10 Counties for nine days, with 5,000 cavalry & set up his gen q within the fortifications of Richmond, he destroyed Lee’s railroad, communication & millions of rebel commissary stores.
