Sidney and I Attended the Theater

[2 December – 4 December 1861]

 

Monday 2nd [December 1861]

 

The captain was kind enough to give us a pass for Washington today. We walked to the city. Sidney and I attended the theatre at night and were arrested by the patrol and finally lodged in guardhouse.

 

Tuesday 3rd

 

Well here we are confined with about one hundred and fifty prisoners. I think we shall be released though this morning. I guess when they catch me again they will know it.

Wednesday 4th

 

            Received a pass from the Provost Marshall today at two o’clock and returned home glad to escape from the loathsome station house.
