Saturday, February 23rd, 1861

To day I went with John Harwell to the polls, and while there had to act as one of the clerks to the election. The vote at precinct No. 7 stood for Secession 31, against Secession 5. I voted for it. weather cloudy & warm, until in the evening when the wind hauled around to the North & it became very cold with a heavy frost at night.
