Camp on the Big Black River, Near Vicksburg
Today, the family went to mass with the Chaplin, Father J.C. Carrier. Afterward, Ellen and I drove with the children into Vicksburg to call on General and Mrs Grant. Mrs. Grant is leaving for Saint Louis with the General to accompany her. Mrs Grant has been calling her husband, “Victor” lest he get too full of himself over the victory at Vicksburg.
