Stephen Greenleaf Bulfinch Diary, Post 20

The following excerpt is from the diary of Stephen Greenleaf Bulfinch.

Sunday, Feb. 15th, 1863

I should have recorded in my last entry that two of my young friends, - the Weymouths, - were taken prisoners at Galveston, with others from this neighborhood. The war continues, & there is some reason to fear that insubordination at the Northwest may complicate the evil. God have our country in His holy keeping!

Sunday, Feb. 22d, 1863

 In our own town another victim of the war is buried to-day, - as one was last Sunday. The days are dark, - but ‘Deep in unfathomable mines’ etc.
