Found ourselves this morning below the church of Bonnet Quarre; passed General Hampton's fine estate, Donaldsonville, etc.
Among our passengers are Mr. and Mrs. Maeder (Clara Fisher that was). She has a fine child. White hair and fair skin, exactly such as I anticipate my Alice will be when I see her.
Wrote to Brander McK. and W., Wm. Christy and R. Triplett about my script.
