I did not get to sleep last night until nearly morning. Thronging thoughts of my situation, my recent bereavement in the death of my darling child, the exposed condition of my wife and children nearly crazed me. I had heard nothing from Mr Leutze. I felt deserted by man and by God. The day has been passed in despondency. Incarcerated by despotic power, and from the accounts of those who preceded us and are not here, there is but little hope of release from its brutal grasp. A proposition from Dr Broaddus that we should close each day thereafter with a reading o the Scriptures and prayer was very acceptable and thus closed the day.

Got but little sleep last night, and that of a disturbed and unrefreshing character. The day was passed in restlessness and gloom. No other thought but of home, wife and children.
