“…I trust the time is not far distant when my evening can be passed with one who is dearer to me than life itself…”

“Pleasant. Remained at home during the day. Mother passed the evening at Mrs E. Lincolns  Lizzie at Abby Dunbars. (sp?) it is a lovely evening. and I desire that my feelings may be as calm as nature (sp?). but I am to pass another lonely evening and I trust the time is not far distant when my evening can be passed with one who is dearer to me than life itself.”  – Hattie E.F. D.

Notes: Lizzie is Hattie’s younger sister, who would have been 13yrs old in 1866.
