Wednesday Feb. 22. 1865

Mr. McLean left this morning after breakfast promising that Kate should visit us soon.  Mrs. Cutler & Sarah came home this forenoon.
The cannon boomed for an hour today from Fort Bowman.  I presume in honor of Washington’s birthday -- and also rejoicing over the successes of Sherman in taking [unreadable] and Columbia in S. C., over the evacuation of Charleston & perhaps more than all over Fort Sumter and the Stars and stripes which now wave over it.
