April 21. 1865 Friday

Nancy went to town to get her bonnet fixed came home on the 11’ o’clock train — James Walton here to dinner got $10 of the money his parents sent, for his summer clothing to get a spring coat — Took up several cedar wreaths.  We swept and dusted the church and proceeded to arrange the drapery, but the results were very unsatisfactory —  Mrs. A. S. Bailey, Mrs W. D. Bailey, Louisa Carpenter, Nancy Cole, & Mrs Dickey were there.  Mr A. S. Bailey came & helped us, but we concluded to adjourn & meet tomorrow after noon and complete the work.
Mrs Cutler went to her mothers —  William came home on the Paymaster’s extra train about the middle of the afternoon —
