funeral which took place at 11 o clock at St Thaddeus Church. She was buried in the grave yard 
5. PM. No telegraphic news today from any quarter. The papers today confirm the news of the enemy having entered Georgetown
We had a fine rain last night, & today it has been cool & cloudy. It has now commenced raining again.
I have written today an article for the Courier under the signature of Justice, intended as a vindication of the Manufacturers from the charge of extortion. I think they have been too harshly judged & condemned by public opinion.

Sunday 25 Cool & cloudy with a chilly N. E. wind. There was a hail storm on Friday evening a few miles below which accounts for the change.
We all went in to Church this morning Mr Ladson & his family came up on Friday; & Mr Mazyck was also at Church. He has only come for a few days, & will return to remain on the sea shore. He saw William in town on Thursday.
