Wednesday, May 1st, 1861

To day the Liberty Guards turned out to receive the Polk County Guards under Capt. D. D. Moore, who are now on their way to the seat of war in Virginia. The Liberty Guards escorted them down to the ware house where they quartered. but little business doing. I attended the store sales during the parade of the Guards. weather cloudy & warm.
