Tuesday April 4” 1865

Fort Boreman waked up today and the cannons proclaimed the victory over the Rebels — The Confederate Government is on horseback somewhere, they left Richmond Sabbath afternoon, and Lee evacuated that night.  Rev. Mr. Merwin of Pomeroy here — gave him quite an assortment of flowers and shrubs for his parsonage grounds.
