Friday, May 29th, 1863

To day I am still in Liberty and moved my quarters from Captain Wrigley's over to Captain Peacock's. Jack McKim poor fellow was gathered to his fathers. he died about 8 o'clock a.m. "unwept, unhonored & unsung" although for form sake he was buried with Masonic honors. My wagons arrived at night and drove down to the ware house where they are now camped. Mrs. Beale [Elizabeth Lemaire Beale nee Waring] has some what recovered from her indisposition, occasioned by the arrival of her daughter, Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire]. There was two deaths in Liberty. weather cloudy & rather cool with occasional showers of rain.
