Thursday May 4” 1865

Busy in the garden.  Nancy has cleaned her own room & the upper entry to-day.  Investigations by the War Department prove that Jeff. Davis knew and approved the assassination of President Lincoln as did Saunders, Clay &c in Canada — President Johnson has issued a proclamation offering $100,000 for the capture of Davis and $25,000 apiece for four others.  William came home — a thunder shower this evening.
