Friday, July 13th, 1860

Friday, July 13th, 1860. After travelling again all night, I arrived at Alexandria at day light and thence to Washington City for breakfast, and after breakfast on to the City of Baltimore, where I determined to lay over, because I was very much fatigued, & perfectly worn out for the want of sleep. I stoped at Barnum's hotel [pictured here]. expenses of the day $3.75. weather changable & warm.

Barnum's Hotel is mentioned in Gossip from Baltimore in the New York Times on 19th June 1860.
