Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

March 1861. I have been this morning looking over "My Journal." I can not quite make up my mind to burn it, so I will write another page here. I have been married two years and a half. My married life has so far been very, very, happy. We are united in heart and feeling as well as hand; and have a dear little prattler, a darling little girl to bind us still closer. We have never spoken to each other an angry word; and God grant we never may. We want a house, a little home of our own, and I think I should be almost perfectly happy. But as long as we have each other our darling babe & health we can be happy. I feel anxious for my brothers, my dear, dear, brothers They are except Alonzo at School in Cleveland
