A beautiful day feel very well. at work as usual all day in the office. no news from any source. President Lincoln left this
City for Annapolis, from [illegible] city. Point transfer with the Rebel [Communions]. Feel quite anxious about my dear Friend
[illegible]. War news very good but quite meager. at Work until nearly 12 o'clock p.m.
Friday - for the truth be strong; Own your fault, if in the wrong; Put a bridle on your tongue.
