Thursday, March 21st, 1861

To day the little woman in company with several ladies, went in hunt of black berries. She & Mrs. John Wrigley walk over the railroad bridge, which is a considerable undertaking for a lady. I took a strole in their company on the other side of the river from Liberty. we met with poor success in getting berries however. weather changable & rather cool.
