May 1st 1865 - Monday

A very early spring.  The fruit trees are done blossoming and are out in full leaf.  We have been using lettuce from our garden for some time — The potatoes, onions, beets, and peas are growing nicely.  I have more than a thousand tulips in blossom now.  The Reeves Spirea is also out in bloom and is very beautiful.  Mrs. Cutler and Sarah at Mr. Burgess’s — Maggie Voris got home from Cincinnati to day — Major Dawes here to spend the night.
