HE girls and I finally managed to get out to the Bledsoe Fort Fair on Sunday. The rain had created quite the quagmire and the girls and I ended up soaked nearly to the knees in mud before leaving. Attendance seemed fair considering the weather.

Rose finally got her new dress, a lovely light green in the same style as her two older sisters. She was so proud. The hem is absolutely filthy now after a day spent running in the mud.

For myself, I purchased a new pair of stockings for the season, in a color I have never seen before. They have a very natural, walnut dyed appearance that will go well with my breeches.

Tonight I will begin to pack my gear and tools to make the trek overland to Virginia and Martin his Station. I have sent a letter ahead to let Capt. Martin know that my services as Physician and surgeon will be at his disposal upon my arrival.
